Rober Novak makes a persuasive case against Condi Rice for Secretary of State !
In his article in today's Sun Times:
"Ironically, the most politically popular member of the Bush Cabinet is perhaps the least popular with the conservative Republican base. In contrast, Powell will be missed in foreign ministries around the world, where Rice is distrusted precisely because she is so close to President."

Bob Somerby reminds us that Condi Rice did, in fact, without any doubt lie while under oath to the 9/11 commission.
Richard Clarke on CNN's "Larry King Live:
"If Condi Rice had been doing her job and holding those daily meetings the way Sandy Berger did, if she had a hands-on attitude to being national security adviser when she had information that there was a threat against the United States ... [the information] would have been shaken out in the summer of 2001," he told King.
