Condoleezza Rice on Principles & Values
Secretary of State
If Hillary is nominated, she is very, very likely to win, by maximizing her support among women and minorities--easily defeating any conventional white male candidate the Republicans might send against her. And there is only one viable Republican answer to Hillary's candidacy: Condoleezza Rice. Were Condi & Hillary to face each other, it would be the next great American presidential race and one of the classic bouts in history. Hector vs. Achilles. Lee vs. Grant. Ali vs. Frasier. And now, Condi vs. Hillary.
Condi can beat Hillary because her candidacy would strike directly at the three pillars of the Democratic Party's base: African Americans, Hispanics, and white women.
At the time, Rice's moves were met with heated opposition--and made "more brutal," according to the LA Times, "by the imperious way she carried them out."
Challenged to consult with a faculty committee in deciding which cuts to make, Rice said, "I don't do committees." She told the financial Times in a 1995 interview, "I am direct... sometimes someone has to draw a line between informing, consulting, and deciding."
In retrospect, it is interesting to note how calm Rice was as she was remaking the university through these cuts. She left no hint of indecision or even pain as she went about evaluating the problem methodically.
After the first year, he ran out of cotton and needed a way to pay for college. Praise be - God gave him one. Grandfather asked how the other boys were staying in school. "They have what's called a scholarship," he was told, "and if you wanted to be a Presbyterian minister, then you could have one, too." Granddaddy Rice said, "That's just what I had in mind." And my family has been Presbyterian and college-educated ever since. This is not just my grandfather's story - it is an American story.
I joined for different reasons. I found a party that sees me as an individual, not as part of a group. I found a party that puts family first. I found a party that has love of liberty at its core. And I found a party that believes that peace begins with strength.
