RICE BECOMES SECRETARY OF STATE... AP DOES IT AGAIN
As you probably heard, Condoleezza Rice shifted over to the Secretary of State position today. This has been a common move in the past after someone serves as National Security Advisor they move on to the more public and somewhat lighter role as our head foreign affairs statesperson. It was even rumored that if Gore won back in 2000 that Clinton's National Security Advisor, Sandy Berger, would have become his Secretary of State.
Anyways, the Associated Press cracks me up with their biased reporting again. Scott Lindlaw's headline for this event is "Bush Names Hawkish Rice Top U.S. Diplomat." Words matter.
