    Obama himself wouldn't want to debate Condi.....let alone Hillary wanting to take her on.
    I don't know. She's generally eschewed the limelight and politics in general, which is why I credit her with behaving with decorum. And people have been "talking to her" about running for office for a bazillion years now. But if she changed her mind and was dropped onto the campaign trail and you'd be hearing "57 states"-like comments from her in no time. It's unavoidable. As for being not willing to debate Condi, well, has Rice even been in many televised debates? I can't recall.

    I'd vote for her before anybody else that I've heard as a possibility right now. On either side. Palin deserved what she got - she looked like an idiot and politics is perception. A lot of people on the right think that Palin is, if not stupid, definitely not the image they want to present.

    Rice, on the other hand, is very intelligent. She carries herself well. I'd be hard pressed to come up with a better candidate.

    But as we've heard from the right here, Obama has ruined the chances of anybody black ever getting elected again, so....can't have it both ways.

    I am sure she has debated people.....plus she has had to testify in front of Congress and directly to Democrats. Besides her being a professor and knowing what she is talking about. She has the Experience. Obama doesn't really have any FP exp. Hillary lacks the credentials to even be in a Debate with Condi.

    I hope what happened to Palin happens to you one day. She had her daughter and baby messed with. Class up buddy.

    Condolezza Rice is full of crap. She had her chance to run things when she was hanging out with Bush. I remember how Olmert embarrassed her in front of the whole world. If she wants to label Obama as weak, she should remember this and shut up.

    George Bush 'shamed' Condoleezza Rice, says Ehud Olmert - Telegraph

    George Bush 'shamed' Condoleezza Rice, says Ehud Olmert

    US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was left shamefaced after President George W Bush ordered her to abstain in a key UN vote on the Gaza war, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said on Monday.

    "She was left shamed. A resolution that she prepared and arranged, and in the end she did not vote in favour," Mr Olmert said in a speech in the southern town of Ashkelon.

    The UN Security Council passed a resolution last Thursday calling for an immediate ceasefire in the three-week-old conflict in the Gaza Strip and an Israeli withdrawal from Gaza where hundreds have been killed.

    Fourteen of the council's 15 members voted in favour of the resolution, which was later rejected by both Israel and Hamas.

    The United States, Israel's main ally, had initially been expected to voted in line with the other 14 but Ms Rice later became the sole abstention.

    "In the night between Thursday and Friday, when the secretary of state wanted to lead the vote on a ceasefire at the Security Council, we did not want her to vote in favour," Mr Olmert said.

    "I said 'get me President Bush on the phone'. They said he was in the middle of giving a speech in Philadelphia. I said I didn't care. 'I need to talk to him now'. He got off the podium and spoke to me.

    "I told him the United States could not vote in favour. It cannot vote in favour of such a resolution. He immediately called the secretary of state and told her not to vote in favour."

    Mr Bush has consistently placed the blame for the conflict on Hamas, telling reporters on Monday that while he wanted to see a "sustainable ceasefire" in Gaza, it was up to Hamas to choose to end its rocket fire on Israel.
    She should know what happens when you start dealing with these abominable snakes. That's the way they operate.

    Yes when Ukraine asked for help from Obama, he gave them MRE's.

    Putin's response ? To annex Crimea.

    Yea, the Democrats Foreign policy is something else isn't it ?? It's the " if we show our Putin how weak and scared we are, maybe they'll just stop because they feel sorry for us ''?

    The US would be in a better place if Romney had won. Obama is a weak leader, domestically and abroad-and Americans are paying for it.

    Re: Condi Rice Blasts Obama on Weakness, Leadership

    Another lying piece of **** from last decade slamming the POTUS while he is overseas. The livers of all Bush low-lifes are going bad having to drink themselves to sleep over the lives they killed and maimed last decade through their lies. Let's see how well college football accepts this sleazy liar this year .
