Apparently, she gave a speech at a school where she took questions. Spontaneous questions? No, no! Vetted, pre-approved questions, of course!
The controls clamped down on the Secretary of State's "interaction" with French students are even more embarrassing when you consider what Dr. Rice said in her speech. "History is made by men and women of conviction, of commitment and of courage, who will not let their dreams be denied." But there was Dr. Rice, denying a free exchange between the Bush administration and a bunch of French college students. What exactly is the administration afraid of? Men and women of conviction? That the French students will ask annoying questions? So what?
So, what, indeed.
And, of course, this shining example of liberty and freedom preceded her fabulous job talking about the current issues between Syria and Lebanon, and why we recalled our ambassador before a HUGE funeral of State.
I'm not a fan of Condoleeza Rice. I think she's a smart, talented woman who's wasting it all in order to be able to play the game.
