Newt Gingrich is meeting with former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice today at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution as he continues on the third day of his California swing.

The huddle is a luncheon meeting between Gingrich and a group of professors at the school, reports Politico’s Ginger Gibson. Spokesmen for Gingrich and the Hoover Institution did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Rice, who served as George W. Bush’s second secretary of state from 2005 to 2009, is currently a professor of political economy at the Hoover Institution.

Gingrich has had warm words for Rice along the campaign trail, such as at a December event in Iowa where he told the crowd that he’d like to see the former secretary of state debate Vice President Joe Biden:

Almost as bad as sitting on the couch with Pelosi. Dr. Rice is an Arabist RINO.

“he’d like to see the former secretary of state debate Vice President Joe Biden:”

He already did in a sense, through his debate with Palin. And on this count, he won. So I think it’s a bad idea.

PALIN: A two-state solution is the solution. And Secretary Rice, having recently met with leaders on one side or the other there, also, still in these waning days of the Bush administration, trying to forge that peace, and that needs to be done, and that will be top of an agenda item, also, under a McCain-Palin administration.

BIDEN: Gwen, no one in the United States Senate has been a better friend to Israel than Joe Biden. I would have never, ever joined this ticket were I not absolutely sure Barack Obama shared my passion.

But you asked a question about whether or not this administration’s policy had made sense or something to that effect. It has been an abject failure, this administration’s policy.

In fairness to Secretary Rice, she’s trying to turn it around now in the seventh or eighth year.

Here’s what the president said when we said no. He insisted on elections on the West Bank, when I said, and others said, and Barack Obama said, “Big mistake. Hamas will win. You’ll legitimize them.” What happened? Hamas won.

We're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little more now if we can and the rest next quarter.

Are you sure she actually voted for Hussein?

I know she spoke positively of him, but I don’t remember hearing her endorse him.

Even if she’s on the Republican Vice Presidential ticket?

Samuel L. Jackson would be proud.

Not actually true. She hasn’t come out and said she voted for Obama, but people have read that into her comments, which could be interpreted as her saying that as an African-American she was glad a Black was elected. That’s coy and subtle, but she didn’t come out and say she voted for Obama.

She is pro-abortion, so she will never get my vote for anything.

"Among those churches which are not members of the WCC, the most notable is the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). Since 1965 a Joint Working Group (JWG), co-sponsored by the WCC and the RCC, has met regularly to discuss issues of common interest and promote cooperation. The group meets annually. One of the church and ecumenical relations staff members serves as co-secretary for the JWG and helps to coordinate contact between the Council and the dicasteries of the Vatican through the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. [And] . . . Though the Roman Catholic Church is not a member of the WCC, it is a full member of the Faith & Order Commission. The RCC also serves the team on Mission & Evangelism in a consultative capacity."

Commencement Address at Boston College (Secretary Condoleezza Rice, Boston, Massachusetts, May 22, 2006. US Department of State)

Excerpts:

As a student of a Catholic high school, the Sisters of Loretta taught me, I am pleased to be at an institution of higher education with such strong and celebrated Catholic and Jesuit traditions . . . You see, I got my Master's Degree at Notre Dame. (Boos.) I acquired a passion for the fighting Irish . . . and my family has been college educated and Presbyterian ever since. (Laughter and applause.) . . . I wandered into a course on international politics taught by a Czech refugee who specialized in Soviet studies, a man who had a daughter by the name of Madeleine Albright. With that one class, I was hooked. I discovered that my passion was Russia and all things Russian.

I wish I could. I believe it was an interview with either CNN or CNBC. But we are relying on MY memory. Not a good thing! I may look for it later on and if I do, I shall make sure to get back to you. I know how frustrating it can be for someone to cite an interview or statement but not be able to provide a link. I do apologize.

I do not think there is anything Condi could possibly do that would disappoint me. I have a great respect and so much admiration for her. She has accomplished so much and I think she is truly a good person.
