Grudging Respect

I find myself in profound opposition to her world-view, and I think her role in the Bush presidency has been, well, not good. [Insert forceful tirade about Iraq war here]

I saw some of the footage of her Senate confirmation hearings yesterday on C-Span. It seemed to me she destroyed Barbara Boxer both rhetorically and stylistically; it wasn't even remotely competitive. If things continue as they are, Rice will probably continue to be a force after the Bush presidency as long as the Republicans continue to run things. Vice President in 2008? Watch out.
