Colin out; Condi in
Dr.Condoleezza Rice is chosen to be America's 66th Secretary of State, an office first held by Thomas Jefferson.
As President Bush said, "The Secretary of State is America's face to the world. And, in Dr. Rice, the world will see the strength, the grace and the decency of our country."
The genesis of the name Condoleezza is amusing. Her parents loved music and were influenced by the term, 'Con Dolcezza', which in Italian means, 'sweetly, softly'.
If one's name is any indication of success, Dr. Rice has the perfect one for the job.
Condi will get America's point across to the world, sweetly & softly, without ruffling any feathers.
