Notice how the media only focuses on Ben-Veniste's parlance with Condi - not Kerrey's or Gorelicker's... The reason is simple -- Condi deftly disarmed both of them, and had enough time to draw a big fat "C" (not a "Z") on their exposed chests.
Look back at footage or read the transcripts: Gorelicker had been nailing Condi over the role of the FBI and the divide between it and the CIA... Now, Gorelicker comes out and asks Condi -Why didn't you do something to restructure the FBI in those 7 months? - Now, Gorelicker has just walked into Condi's trap. Gorelicker was herself an Assistant Attorney General to CLINTON between 94 and 97!! She was Janet Reno's henchlady! Condi is the NSA for BUSH... Here's the deal: An NSA is the Principal Cabinet Member who will work closely with the CIA. The Attorney-General is the principal cabinet member who will oversee the FBI!! Condi does it perfectly and professionally. She responds by saying, "Well, I think the real question here is..." why the AGs office under Clinton didn't change the FBI immediately after the 1993 World Trade Center bombings... and Condi stops short of asking Gorelicker why Gorelicker didn't act like an Assistant AG in all those years to do what Gorelicker JUST ASKED CONDI about (Gorelicker being an AG whose Job WAS to oversee the FBI!!!). Notice how Gorelicker backs off from that point onward and decides to play nice???!!!
Next, Kerrey thinks he can tear into Condi... and Condi reminds him about how his first advice to retaliate against the Cole was to attack Saddam Hussein!!! Notice how Kerrey's face just went red, and he was a bit out of his seat and off balance??? It solicited laughs. Kerrey didn't altogether back off, but the media won't really touch much of that exchange now. Condi was a most excellent advocate for the Bush Administration. If a black woman ever wants to be elected ... we've got a Republican Lady of Color who may be the champion of the Bush Presidency, and the Republican States of the South will long remember Condi Rice with great admiration, respect, and a color-blind love for her devotion to the TRUTH and her loyalty to America. Just a note: But do people realize that Bush's Cabinet is the most ethnically diverse group of people in White House history? Do most people realize that Clinton had one of the most ethnically monotonous Cabinets in modern times? Maybe the minority communities need to realize that the "Ruling" Democrats are a bunch of white elitists who will only elect a black president by proxy (According to John Kerry, Clinton was the first black president, and he wants to be the second!!)... I guess the black people will never have a truly black president under the DNC!!! Its more likely to happen with the Republican party at this rate!!!!!
