ABC News is Reporting that Condoleezza Rice will be nominated by George Bush to take the Secretary of State position from Powell.
If there was any doubt that Powell was a Moderate and opposing force in the Bush Administration… there should be even less doubt that Rice will be a strong supporter of the Bush Doctrine.
Another interesting side thread…. there are many rumblings that Condi Rice could run for President.
The possibility of an all female US Presidential campaign in 2008 is very real.
Hillary vs. Condi, stick those two in a TV debate… put on you safety glasses, their combined IQ will burst most TV sets.
UPDATE: Reports now indicate that Richard Armitage has left his post as Deputy as well. I haven’t heard any speculation on his replacement, but I heard one British analyst on CKNW (local talk radio) say that Paul Wolfowitz was in the running for Secretary… so perhaps he is now in the runnning for Deputy.
Wolfowitz is one of those boogey-men that lefties like to point out and scream at. He’s a major contributor to the 3-axis/neo-con/Bush Doctrine…
