Condoleezza Rice, President George W Bush's nominee as secretary of state, says she will use diplomacy to reach a balance of power in the world.

"Our interaction with the rest of the world must be a conversation, not a monologue," Ms Rice told the Senate during her confirmation hearing.

Iraq was high on the agenda of the session expected to last two days.

Huh?

Hmmm
Too little Too late.

BTW.
They already have covert opps in Iran trying to discover missle target sites. The diplomacy will be a token gesture so that they can say "well we tried to talk to them, But they won't listen to what we say. So, we gotta bomb them."

At this point does Ms. Rice have any credibility in requesting "diplomacy"? The answer is no.

Condoleezza Rice is simply the yes man working for the man, or should i say yes woman. So new twist of events, by becoming secretary of state she will now be the yes woman to all the leaders of the world.

Harmony or Disaster? We'll see..

Well, you don't go into the position of Secretary of State with your own agenda, unless it happens to dovetail with the President's.

The balance of power thing is what puzzles me. Who is our equal?

Rice Links Iraq Withdrawal to Security

WASHINGTON - Secretary of State nominee Condoleezza Rice told senators on Tuesday that a U.S. exit strategy from Iraq depends on that country's ability to defend itself against terrorists after this month's elections. She vowed to work to ease ties with allies frayed by U.S. policy there.

"The world is coming together behind the idea that we have to succeed in Iraq," she asserted at a confirmation hearing on her nomination to replace Colin Powell in the top foreign policy post.

Stepping out from her largely behind-the-scenes role as President Bush's national security adviser, Rice said she could not give Congress a timetable for American disengagement.

You have to be kidding me.

See, it's all about an 'exit strategy'.

Yeah but the Exit leads into Iran and N.Korea.

It's all about neo-invasion, we now call "pre-emptive war."

Condi is awesome, I just read her biography.
I bet she is just starting to exert her power to turn this foot-in-mouth administration around.

She'd make a great president...

Did anybody see here sidestep the issue's that the senator--I cant remember her name, but she was like a hawk with grey hair--put forth to her? It was kind of funny. Rice appeared to get a little upset when proof was shown that she had lied to the American people on more than one account.....Maybe she would make a good president

Wow, some heavy words coming out of Rice so early on in the ball game. Apparently this woman has the intentions of joining that proverbial "foot-in-mouth" club.

Duh..

Rice: Venezuela's Chavez 'Very Deeply Troubling'

When I first read the title of this thread, just one thing came to mind.
Rice calling for diplomacy is akin to Satan calling for peace on earth.

I wish I shared your idealism...

She's just telling Congress what it wants to hear...she wouldn't have been up for Secretary of State if she didn't say "Yes Sir!" to Shrub's plans....

Barbara Boxer, famous liberal Senator from California. The only Senator to challenge the 2004 vote. Her daughter, btw, married Hillary Clinton's brother in 1994.

I kind of like her previous policy better:

Punish France, ignore Germany and forgive Russia

I don't think the red states will go for a black woman as president. I'm all for it (not Condi though), but then again I'm not an American Conservative.

I'm an American conservative and I love Condi and would vote for her in a second. I also hate Hillary, as most Republicans do. If the Democrats nominate Hillary, it'll galvanize the Republican party like nothing ever before.

That says it all though, really. If Colin powell would never make it to Presidency, what makes you think Condi will?

By the way, I'd support Colin Powell as President. Weird huh?
