Rice appointed as ‘America’s face to the world’

Rice appointed as ‘America’s face to the world’ – World – www.theage.com.au

“US President George Bush promoted his most trusted foreign policy adviser to Secretary of State today, tapping Condoleezza Rice to replace warrior-turned-diplomat Colin Powell as part of a sweeping second-term cabinet overhaul.

“The secretary of state is America’s face to the world and in Dr Rice the world will see the strength, grace and decency of our country,” Bush said of his national security adviser.”

Interesting turn of events. Powell was the only voice of reason in the “War on Terror”, and is the only moderate one in the Bush team. Rice is widely recognised as being one of the “neo-con” hawks and one of the believers in the policy of using US military might to shape the world

I can’t see THIS face being a face of grace and decency.

HOWEVER, she does sound like a character though, so it will be interesting to see what happens.

Colin and Condoleezza comparison.

A bit about Condoleezza herself.
