    WASHINGTON - Condoleezza Rice skips across time zones and consumes miles with the same gusto she applies on the treadmill before the sun comes up. Three months into her job as secretary of state, Rice has pretty much defined herself as a tireless, stylish blur. She's been out of town the equivalent of one month, her more than 73,000 miles in the air amounting to almost three circles of the globe. She walks fast, talks fast and packs her schedule, from her ritual exercise at 5:30 a.m. to phone calls late at night. She glides on the thin ice of...

    She's in the news for her sartorial sensations and for a so-categorically-denied-it-sounded-like-yes response to speculation she'll run for president in 2008. In Condoleezza Rice's early weeks as secretary of State, she is racking up air miles at a near record pace and overseeing a Bush foreign policy that appears to be shifting lately in her direction. Some expert observers are calling it a shift to "realism" - of the kind Ms. Rice promoted in the early days of the Bush presidency, when she was national security adviser. Some signs: • After months of refusal, the US is now joining three...

    But Condoleezza Rice is sailing like a jet-powered butterfly among our potential allies-for-peace, creating a better atmosphere. Within her purview, this is all, and more, than we could have expected......Dang that George W. Bush. Just when we were cooking up a good hate, he enters his second term and seems to be mellowing a bit. Regardless of what you think about every Bush administration policy, surely you believe new Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is getting a great start. She’s everywhere, already having made a tour of Europe and the Middle East, seeming to make progress wherever she goes. You...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the Iraqi elections are "going better than expected" Sunday, despite conflicting reports about the extent of voter turnout in areas plagued by intimidation and violence. "Every indication is that the election in Iraq is going better than expected," Rice said on ABC's "This Week." President Bush, meanwhile, did not respond to reporters' questions about the Iraqi elections as he left services at the Episcopalian church he regularly attends a block from the White House. Churchgoers mentioned the Iraq elections in their weekly prayers. Rice praised the bravery of Iraqi voters and...

    If the Iraqi elections lead to a stable government and open the way to a phased American troop withdrawal, Bush's image around the world would be buoyed. Republicans on the ballot in 2006 and 2008 also would be relieved. On the other hand, problems with the election could complicate Bush's efforts to pass costly items on his second-term domestic agenda, such as partially privatizing Social Security (news - web sites).

    WASHINGTON (AP) - America's first black woman secretary of state took the ceremonial oath of office Friday surrounded by family and friends, some who had traveled from her native Alabama, as well as the president, first lady and a Supreme Court justice. Condoleezza Rice's uncle, Alto Ray, and two aunts, Genoa McPhatter and Mattie Bonds, held the Bible for the ceremony in the State Department's formal dining room. Right after she thanked President Bush and the first lady, Laura Bush, Rice thanked her family and friends. "They represent generations of Rices and Rays who believed that a day like this...

Madeleine Albright has lived a bit. Now 66, she tells Emma Brockes she is ready to start dating again It is two years since Madeleine Albright was US secretary of state, but she still inspires the sort of deference reserved for the World's Most Powerful.

    Time Magazine ^ | September 22, 2003 | JFO McAllister and Madeleine Albright
    When Madeleine Albright became Secretary of State, the Czech-born exile was the first woman to serve in that post. On the eve of the publication of her memoir, Madame Secretary (Miramax; 592 pages)—which covers everything from discovering belatedly that her family was Jewish to her years in the Clinton Administration—she spoke with TIME's J.F.O. McAllister. Unlike other memoirs, Madame Secretary has hardly a hint of score settling. If you didn't want to set the record straight, why did you write it? The day-to-day making of policy is arguing all the time. You're trying to get the right approach and the...
