Who Should be Sec. of State: Condi Rice or Juan Cole?

Even Senators Boxer and Kerry are willing to say Dr. Rice is “qualified” to be Secretary of State, which I find amazing in that both Senators have the courage to admit Dr. Rice is dishonest. But isn’t credibility a key element in the list qualifications for our nation’s chief diplomat? Which is why I really enjoyed reading Rice Doublespeak at Senate by Juan Cole who also gives the new Secretary of State some very good advice:

If Rice is going to be a successful Secretary of State, she simply has to get back control of US foreign policy from the Likudniks in the Bush administration.
