R. Dr. Rice appeared on Meet the Press with Tim Russert, where she stated she has no intention of running for President. What a shame, I hope she changes her mind because she is the most qualified person to run for 2008 US Elections.

Private life of Dr. Condoleezza Rice!

Concert Classical Pianist, but when working out, she treadmills, listening to Led Zeppelin's Heavy Metal sound! She is athletic, enjoys gourmet food, has her own classical quartet, which consists of her close friends playing classical music together. She plays the piano. These sessions are held in her house or the other members of the quartet. She speaks various languages and familiar with global cultures. She is an extremely cultural woman. She is a veteran politician with pure class.

Another powerful speech by Condy


Let's see if I can add another group to the list of my enemies!
Let me be frank with yous! I do not have much respect for HouseWives! I enjoy career women. I enjoy highly educated, sophisticated, talented, extremely intelligent, very powerful and knowledgeable career women. I love strong women. Rocket Scientists, Brain Surgeons, Aerospace Engineers, Aeronautic Engineers, Computer Scientists, Marine Biologists, Astronomers, and indeed Secretaries of State would do!

Let me be frank with you. The only thing "Desperate House Wives" are good for, is ………! If you know what I mean!


Condy and W, what a team!

Well, what can I say? Even though she is not really pretty, yet there is something about her that turns me on! Powerful women have that effect on me!

I certainly would like to see Condy run in 2008, but I doubt if the "Ignorant America" is ready for a "Black Female Conservative" president! Ignorant "white racists" (on the right) and ignorant "welfare-state liberal Negroes" (on the left) will both bash her! But she is the perfect example of the powerful and intelligent black woman, and the new face of GOP. What say you?

One thing is for sure that women like Condy do not grow on trees, so we must appreciate these ladies.

More power to Condy and I hope she runs for 2008.
