Prexy Sks Wrk Wf - Condoleezza Rice's promotion creates a void. By Timothy Noah

Prexy Sks Wrk Wf - Condoleezza Rice's promotion creates a void. By Timothy Noah: "Condoleezza Rice's elevation from national security adviser to secretary of state creates two dangerous voids. As has been widely noted, the appointment replaces Colin Powell, a dissenter of considerable stature, with Condi Rice, a compulsive parent-pleaser who appears physically incapable of uttering the words, 'You're wrong' to her commander in chief. As the New York Times put it in a Nov. 17 editorial, 'as national security adviser, [Rice] seemed to tell him what he wanted to hear about decisions he'd already made, rather than what he needed to know to make sound judgments in the first place.'"
