CNN notes that with Don Rumsfeld finally put out to pasture, Condi Rice has become more of a target for critics.
At a time when the American public and Congress have soured deeply on the war, they are now taking their frustrations out on the administration as a whole, and Rice in particular.
I always thought Condi received somewhat of a free pass from the press, with numerous admiring profiles of her as a football-loving concert pianist. Maybe the fact that she’s the first black woman as secretary of state earned her a certain amount of goodwill off the bat.
In any case, the goodwill is gone, with stories like the possibly bungled Iran overture piling up. She’s even becoming more of a target of ridicule, as this video demonstrates.
These must be tough times for the Draft Condi movement.
