Sad, but true.
Ol' George got rid of one incompetent - the treasonous Powell - only to give Rice the job, and watch her foul it up.
Most importantly, she doesn't understand the job. It's her job to coordinate the tools of statecraft to achieve US foreign policy objectives.
I don't see that happening.
The problems facing the nation are relatively few, and those that are not important must be ignored. Focus on the crazed mullahs and kill them when you get a chance.
At her disposal, the Secretary of State has the world's most powerful military, economy, and citizenry. Where is the comprehensive plan to use these resources?
She wanders around the world, and the nation, saying whatever comes into her little-bitty head.
I'd hoped for better, but it's just not happening.
She sure came out of that room of piranhas in Rome and kept her foot down.
Nonsense. She is better than Powell.
