The Presidency Reduced to Being a Puppet

Via Kevin Drum, the Los Angeles Times profiles Condi Rice. And some some think she would make a good President?

Rice’s ability to become an almost clone-like extension of the president – to understand what he wants, to make her only agenda his agenda and to carry out his wishes with unfailing loyalty – has made her invaluable…….”She is remarkably effective in being a very attractive mirror for whomever she is working with”.

Rice may have been the worst NSA ever and now many of us are seriously questioning her ability to assume the task of Secretary of State. One of her problems is she is more interested in being a partisan hack willing to carry the water of her political bosses. But now some are claiming these would be her virtues if she became President? Then again – George W. Bush has been accused of serving certain special interests quite well.
