Condolezza Rice seems to have the world in awe. I totally admire her for what she's done in her life, who wouldn't? But the fact that we studied the same thing in college and she is a Russian speaker makes me feel more of a connection.
British thought from the News Telegraph
It seems those Brits think no one is immune to her charm. Usually staunch, proper English politicians giggle and act like school boys around her. Even those who totally disagree with her stand on issues still respect her to the utmost. I think I've become a Condista. Condi 2008!
