Then there's that prediction that Dick Cheney's gonna step down before the end of Bush's term so Connie can ascend to the VP slot, setting her up for a VP candidacy (and keeping the NeoCon strings on things for another term)...

Condoleezza Rice said: "I will say race is still a factor. When a person walks into a room, I still think people still see race."

Gee, you think?

Interestingly, I believe Condi and Colin are two of the few REPUBLICANS who haven't drunk the Kool-Aid that "race doesn't matter anymore." I'll give her credit for that. And that's about it.

Rod, are you sure this was Condo-lee-za in this interview? I can't believe that she would actually say race is still an issue! I thought that to be a token GOP black, you had to say race was no longer an issue in the good old US of A? And, its one of the reasons that I still don't see a black man or woman becoming president for a few more years. That's my point of it all, race is still a issue, and no matter where I go, or what I do, I will always be seen as a black man, and the baggage that goes along with it, even though I don't carry too much myself. Black first, gay second, the joys of life on planet earth,so, we have gots to be stronger than most to deal with all the nonsense, LOL!

I'm with Andy on this one. Rice is a neo-conservative, but, as I've written before, she hasn't been deluded by the "color-blind society" talking points.

Let's not forget, Rice grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and knew the little girls who died in the infamous church-bombing. She and Colin Powell are Republicans, but, and both extremely accomplished, but that doesn't necessarily mean she forgets where she came from. And, to be honest, we don't know Rice's positions on domestic and social policy, on her foreign policy views.
