So whats the deal with Condoleezza Rice? I'm not really sure why, but people seem to describe her as a 'highly intelligent women' - as an example of women who are smart and educated and blah.
Now, reading about her background and that, she does seem to have achieved quite a lot academically. She has a PhD, used to lecture at Stanford, and knows about four or five languages. Impressive credentials indeed.
Whats the deal, then, with all thats going on with the Bush administration? I know its not right to equate education with morality (I don't think theres a correlation), but surely if shes so 'smart', and a professor of politcal science, she'd be able to see that the policies of the Bush admin are directly contribution to the problems it apparently is fighting? Unless theres more going on here than what we're told, you'd expect some forward thinking from someone who's supposedly so bright.
