Rice Is New Secretary of State

Just for the record, Rice was confirmed, as expected as Secretary of State. It’s interesting that Reuters issued a report about the time of her confirmation saying that the rest of the world, with a few exceptions, is worried about what four more years of Bush will mean. It says the world fears that “the most powerful man on the planet may do more harm than good.” Rice’s confirmation as Secretary will not do anything to ease those fears. Keeping Colin Powell around would have.

I don’t think Bush understands much about foreign affairs, but was forced into the arena by 9/11. Osama bin Laden probably didn’t realize what a terrible thing he was inflicting on the whole world, not just the US, by drawing Bush into world affairs. Unfortunately the attack brought out Bush’s nasty side, which otherwise might have been used only against his domestic opponents. It’s surprising that “Christians” embrace such hatred.
