re: US: Condoleezza Rice's Legacy (Bienvenido Macario, Philippines) (John Eipper, USA, 08/25/08 6:20 pm)

JE commented on 25 August:

Despite changing parties two years earlier, Condoleezza Rice played
a role as foreign-policy advisor to the 1984 presidential campaign of
Gary Hart. (Coincidentally, Hart in recent years has held an endowed
professorship at the U of Denver. It is quite possible, moreover, that
Hart would have become president, had it not been for his acquaintance
with another Rice...Donna.)

Bienvenido Macario responds:

The analysts were saying that the timing of the exposure of Gary Hart's
extra-marital affair with Donna Rice ended his bid for President and
paved the way for Michael S. Dukakis's nomination for president. It
was also alleged that Gary Hart did not find favor with the strong
(strongest?) wing of the Democrats as did Hillary.

With regards to foreign policy, I would assume that the Secretary of
State takes orders from the President who has the power to hire and
fire the former. Sec. Condoleezza Rice was confirmed by the Senate,
who could have pressured Pres. Bush to fire Condoleezza Rice when she
was the NSC chief or Secretary of State. I do not know of any hint of
the Democrats' dissatisfaction with Condoleezza Rice's performance
that led to any call for her resignation.

I could not find my VHS tape recording of Condoleeza Rice's
confirmation hearings, so that I may review the same. I remember Sen. Joe
Biden was demonstrating to Condoleezza Rice how confession is done in
the Catholic Church. He was asking Rice to confess to the mistake
about the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that led to the Iraq War
of 2003.

But it was Sen. Barbara Boxer (D, CA) who was very much opposed to her
confirmation that after the confirmation, Dr. Rice sent her a several
dozens of roses to indicate that she was in fact the thorn among roses.
