More on Condi

While we listen to Dr. Rice this AM, here are some tidbits that I found in the local rag this AM. Here are my favorites from the list of 20:

She's a fitness buff who likes to unwind by working out to music by heavy-metal legends Led Zeppelin, according to People magazine. She wakes up at 5 a.m. and hits the treadmill right away.
Cool, she's a Head banger!
She once had a Chevron oil tanker named after her when she served on the company's board of directors. After concerns that her name made the ship a more inviting terror target, the tanker was renamed Altair Voyager.
Funny how this all seems to come back to oil with this administration.
She was a Democrat until 1982.
She's a huge football fan and loves the Cleveland Browns. She's said her "dream job" would be NFL commissioner.
When she was 14, a guidance counselor told her that her standardized test scores showed she wasn't college material.
We never said there was much smarts in this White House!
In February 2001, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told reporters he was distracted the first time he met her. "I have to confess, it was hard for me to concentrate in the conversation with Condoleezza Rice because she has such nice legs."
Ahhhhh, NOW we know why they keep her aboard!
She says she can fall asleep just about anywhere - even once in a helicopter flying over the Gaza Strip.
And intelligence briefings by Richard Clarke!
In 1993, after Rice left the White House, where she worked for the current President's father, to join the Stanford faculty, she told the San Francisco Chronicle the advice she'd give to President Bill Clinton about Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein: "He is an outlaw, but I would be careful about trying to do anything to act to overthrow him."
I wonder if she shared the same advice with GW.

Read them all, while you watch the hearing!
