She serves as a symbol of middle-class progress, feminist achievement, affirmative-action success and individual style. And she has done all this on the world stage...while being black.

If I were a Black woman, I'd be very insulted. What on earth does the color of her skin have to do with anything? I wonder what the author thought about Condi? (A woman who succeeded on the world's stage without a husband's coat tails? Never-mind, dumb question!

Condi isn’t in the “right” camp, so she doesn’t count as a woman or black person of high achievement (unlike Michelle, Condi was a young prodigy in several areas). Did Robin Givhan ever write any glowing, non-snarky articles about the high-profile, influential, and well-dressed Condi during 2000-2008?
