Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has joined CBS News as a contributor, just in time for inauguration coverage.

Rice, who served as secretary of state during President George W. Bush’s second term, made her debut on the network’s “Face the Nation” program Sunday and will be included in inauguration coverage on Monday.

CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager and president David Rhodes made the announcement Sunday, saying Rice “will use her insight and vast experience to explore issues facing America at home and abroad.”

Let Rice's new gig serve as a reminder to all that being consistently wrong about U.S. foreign policy is a great way to break into the mainstream media.

Editor's note: Larry Wilkerson, Colin Powell's chief of staff, once referred to her as a perfect mascot for the billionaires “raping and pillaging not only America, but the rest of the world with their predatory form of capitalism.”
