Newt Gingrich is meeting with former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice today at Stanford Universitys 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 Politicos Ginger Gibson. Spokesmen for Gingrich and the Hoover Institution did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Rice, who served as George W. Bushs 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 hed like to see the former secretary of state debate Vice President Joe Biden:

I respected her till she voted for Obama
Almost as bad as sitting on the couch with Pelosi. Dr. Rice is an Arabist RINO.
“hed 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.
Are you sure she actually voted for Hussein?
I know she spoke positively of him, but I don’t remember hearing her endorse him.
Yes. She said in an interview that she voted for President Obama.
She endorsed Obama.
Another sighting of the rare Arabrino...
Exactly, and she will vote for him again this year , and for the same reason.
Even if she’s on the Republican Vice Presidential ticket?
Samuel L. Jackson would be proud.
“She endorsed Obama.”
We should’ve seen it coming.
Could you provide me with the link to that interview?
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.
Oh, huge mistake. . .
She is pro-abortion, so she will never get my vote for anything.
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.
Sounds like an ethnic dish.
They all voted for him
She endorsed Obama.
As did Colin Powell. It all comes down to the fact that Omuslim is black. To h*ll with his secret, creepy past.
Lunch ... mmmmmmmmmmmmm.
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.
