Condoleezza Rice on 60 Minutes Live Thread [7pm EST, Sunday 3/28]
CBS News ^ | 3-28-04 | CBS News

Posted on 03/28/2004 2:57:31 PM PST by GraniteStateConservative

I was waiting for this to go up. We're about t-minus one hour from it (depending on how long Duke-Xavier goes, I guess). Too bad it's not going to be a long interview like Clarke had. I've noticed that 60 Minutes are not promoting this either. The commercial I just saw advertised the story on soccer phenom Freddy Adu, not the story on Rice or Pickering. I also discovered from the link referenced above that Rice spoke to them this morning and not yesterday as I'd heard would be the case before. Bill Kristol predicted this morning that Rice might say that if this is really such a big deal that she'll testify in public under oath as she's been badgered to do. I don't think Bill has a good track record on predicting news, so take that with a grain of salt. By the way, go Xavier-- I had Duke losing before now in my office pool bracket, but my opponents have them winning it all.

Amen to that but she isn't coming back full time. The White House message has suffered ever since Hughes left.

If you're right, we might as well brace ourselves now for the long dark days of the Kerry administration. 'Cuz if they can't do better than this, that's what's coming.

I don't think we can blame it ALL on CBS (much as I'd like to). Condi was not prepared. There were answers that Freepers could have given that would have resonated with the American public. The answers she gave did not.

Each time I expect her to come on and hit a home run, she disappoints. I don't know if it's a lack of preparation or what, but it was a very disappointing appearance, she let the scum at CB(ull)S(...) run the whole interview.

I was so shocked at how old Bradley looks that I googled his bio. He's 63 yo. Interestingly, he started working for CBS as a stringer out of its Paris bureau in Sept. 1971. As for education, his BS degree is in Education.

Bradley looks like a cadaver with an earring.

They're actually allowing Pickering to tell his side of the story regarding the cross-burning case. They also have cited his testifying against the KKK and that his children went to mostly black public schools.

Guess they can afford to be generous on an issue their side has already won.

You'll notice they called it a "best seller."

Unfortunately it's #1 right now on Amazon..

Don't you love how they interview that Socialist jack*!$ Charles Schumer on TV like he is a fair. Unbelievable! This is why I have not watched this show in years. Its so far to the left, and pretends to be fair and balanced.

HUGE MISTAKE not having her testify. She is charismatic, intelligent, and a great spokeswoman for not only the administration's policies but the administration. So what do you now have? Our folks in Congress talking about perjury...but Rice won't even testify under oath. Clarke today saying let's declassify all of my previous tesimony and emails (see Google). The bottom line is: all this makes the administration look like it's trying to hide something and go after people who criticize it. Rice would blow them away and defuse this whole thing. If not a single national security advisor had ever testified publicaly under oath the administration could pull this off. I predict it's going to cost LOTS of swing votes and even more than what will already be lost if Clarke is prosectuted for perjury. If this was some boring, inarticulate, empty headed bureaucracy it'd be one thing. But one of the administration's most dynamic people, who has a lot of credibility that even Democrats can't eliminate, is being kept from testifying under oath...when her chief accuser has not only testified under oath but is saying all of his closed door testimony should be revealed and all of his emails. Except being on one side in this controversy, which side looks more OPEN to swing voters? Not the White House.

He never gave her a chance to expand on anything! I hope the White House learns something from this. The media has come together to get them out of office. The media doesn't even try to hide it.

Bradley was totally hostile!

Along with subjecting her to the boos and hisses of the 'select 9/11 families'.

Spot on. That's the simplest and best explanation I've seen about why Dr. Rice should not testify publicly.

The entire Kerry strategy is to ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK -- Kerry has never cared about anything except tearing down America. The Communists have understood this for 33 years, now the terrorists recognize it as well -- Kerry is their friend.

"Clarke is a Kerry op..."

I disagree; Clarke is a Clinton op. He is not only defending/building Slick's legacy and reputation via this book, but he's also innoculating Hillary AND...most important...making sure Dr. C. Rice will not ever be considered for the presidency. I continue to hope that most Americans can see through this entire charade, but I don't know...

Yes, we know that but unfortunately the finished product didn't change one mind or clear up the smoke screen that Clarke and the dems have thrown up.
