Yup, Rice Will Replace Powell


by Steve

(check your back Colin)

It’s a done deal. The scenario I laid out earlier in the day with Bush tapping Condi Rice to be the successor to Colin Powell, and the regrettable Stephen (“What CIA objections to the WMD claims are you talking about?”) Hadley to step up as NSA is coming true. Again, and quite simply, the woman has demonstrated nothing in her time as NSA to suggest that she is up to this job.

Except loyalty and an unusual closeness to Bush.

Can someone tell me why Dick Lugar wouldn't have made a better choice? I'll bet Zell Miller is disappointed.
