Rice Not Interested in VP Job

There has been much speculation over the possibility of Condoleezza Rice as John McCain’s vice president. On Monday, the secretary of state gave her answer: “I don’t want to be, don’t intend to be, won’t be on the ticket.” Instead, she plans to return to academia. Because she’s an idea person.

Rice Snubs Argentina

In response to the strengthening of ties between Hugo Chavez and recently elected Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s government, Condoleezza Rice will skip the country on a two-day trip to South America.

Condoleezza Rice Threatens Sudan

While speaking about the Darfur crisis at the United Nations, the secretary of state warned the Sudanese government that “other measures” were available, should it continue to block a U.N. peacekeeping proposal.  Such measures are unlikely to include force, so long as the U.S. maintains troop levels in Iraq and Afghanistan while flirting with an invasion of Iran.

Truthdigger of the Day: Steve Almond

Almond, an adjunct professor at Boston College, has resigned his post to protest the college’s choice of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as commencement speaker. “I cannot, in good conscience, exhort my students to pursue truth and knowledge, then collect a paycheck from an institution that displays such flagrant disregard for both,” he writes.
Imagine if Colin Powell or George Tenet had shown this kind of moral fortitude. There might not have been a war.
