Rice reluctant to say Palin has ?enough experience? on foreign policy.
In an interview with CNN’s Zain Verjee this weekend, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice offered “a less-than-hearty endorsement” of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s foreign policy experience. “She’s governor of a state here in the United States,” said Rice.

In an interview with CNN’s Zain Verjee this weekend, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice offered “a less-than-hearty endorsement” of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s foreign policy experience. “She’s governor of a state here in the United States,” said Rice. Pressed if Palin has “enough experience to handle the kinds of things” she handles, Rice added that “there are different kinds of experiences in life that help one to deal with matters of foreign policy.” Watch it:

By comparison, Rice responded to Sen. Barack Obama’s pick of Sen. Joe Biden as his running mate last month by saying that “Biden is obviously a very fine statesman.” Similarly to Rice, Vice President Dick Cheney offered only tepid praise for Palin’s potential, saying that “each administration’s different and there’s no reason why Sarah Palin can’t be a successful vice president.”

Canadian Consensus

Canadian Consensus
The prospect of a Canadian general election leaves me, and I would guess most of my countrymen, bored. Now, boredom comes in slightly different flavours, and I will admit that the emotions associated with betrayal enter into mine. But it is like the vanilla in the ice cream; one is so used to it. We have about five parties representing five slightly different grades of vanilla. The Tories perhaps anger me the most, because they promise chocolate chips, and don’t deliver. Well, maybe a couple of chocolate chips, but the irritation value of the false packaging more than compensates for them. The chocolate chips in my analogy correspond to the “faith and freedom” values that are baldly presented in any Republican manifesto, and more timidly even in Democrat ones, in the republic to our south and north-west.
