Give me a "C"...Give me an "O"....Give me an "N"...

I'll admit it (in case you hadn't already figured it out); I am a huge fan of Condoleezza Rice. She's tough, focused and MORAL - remember moral? Her "ever the optimist" attitude is only surpassed by her unspoken command for respect - which she deserves. I'm proud of her as a woman and an American.

I don't really know what to think of this TIME article. The author goes back and forth on whether or not he agrees with the "Condi Doctrine" (kind of catchy, don't you think?), but the article is well written and is worth a read.

Her last quote sums up where she's coming from:

"I've lived in a place where difference was not tolerated and difference was a license to kill," she says. "I lived in a place that was not living up to the democratic principles of the United States but where, because the institutions were what they were, people were able to petition from within those institutions, not without ... People kept struggling toward those institutions and values and principles and, over time, we've gotten closer to the ideal. And so when I see Iraqis struggling with really hard issues or Afghans struggling with really hard issues, I'm probably less willing to say, 'Oh, they can't do it.' I look at [our history], and I say what seemed impossible on one day now seems inevitable. Well, that's the way great historical changes are. And it's why I have enormous conviction that these people are going to make it."
Doesn't it just give you a warm fuzzy feeling? Man, I love her!!
