If ever you needed further proof of the "person of color" America really needs in charge right now, I urge you to watch this fabulous YouTube footage of the magnificent Condoleezza Rice being ambushed by left-liberal students at Stanford University with a series of "difficult" questions about torture, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay and US foreign policy under George W Bush. (Hat tip: Andrew Hamilton.)
Her coolness under fire is magnificent, but more impressive still is her refusal to duck the issues. "Sorry we have to leave", an official can be heard saying off camera, but Condi isn't going to take the easy way out: she wants to stand up for her principles and put the pantywaists in their place.
"Let me tell you something: unless you were there in a position of responsibility after September 11 you cannot possibly imagine the dilemmas that we faced in trying to protect Americans," she says.
"Maybe before you make allegations about Guantanamo, you should READ," says Condi, with exquisitely measured .
Condi, you are a star and if America won't have you as our next president, please will you come over and be our next Queen instead?

Condoleezza Rice meets with some students
good for her
If the sheeple wanted a black president why didn’t they choose Condi?
She has more brains in her little finger than the one has in his whole body!
Son, we live in a world that has walls and those walls need to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and curse the Marines; you have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives and that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use then as the backbone of a life trying to defend something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said "thank you," and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest that you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
Nothing would awaken those mushy-headed hippie students better to the brutal realities of the world than a good butt-kicking.
“She has more brains in her little finger than the one has in his whole body!”
More brains, integrity and courage!

Condi isn’t enough of a weasel to be a high ranking politician.
I would gladly voted for Condi for president in 2008.
I was hoping Condi would run last time but she didn’t. I think she would have made a great President.
We now have left wing idiots just like this one now in charge of our national security. Obama is planning on releasing KNOWN TERRORISTS on to American soil. He is doing everything he can to destroy the CIA. He is kissing ass all over the world showing what a *ussy he is.
Obama wants to remove the men with guns from the walls with the hope that the world will now love us for being freaking wimps.
Thanks for the WP version!! I couldn’t help reading some of the commie-comments...

Condi confused them with logic and intelligent conversation.
“I was hoping Condi would run last time but she didnt. I think she would have made a great President.”
You’re right, she has what it takes to be a President, unlike the big-0 we inherited!
Instead of loving him, they mock him.
