Today Condoleezza Rice brokered a border crossing deal between Israel and the Palestinians.
Fox new reports:
“Tuesday on a detailed arrangement for opening the borders of the Gaza Strip and allowing freer movement for Palestinians elsewhere, a significant step toward an eventual peace deal between historic enemies.”
Secretary Rice said "I have to say as a football fan, sometimes the last yard is the hardest, and I think we experienced that today,"
The article went on to say:
"Rice oversaw the marathon negotiations in a Jerusalem hotel, huddling alternately with Israeli and Palestinian negotiators in her suite. She had postponed a planned departure for Asia by a day to shepherd the deal to a conclusion.
On Tuesday morning, she met with Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz to finalize the details.
The agreement gives the Palestinians control over a border for the first time and provides a much-needed boost to the shattered Gaza economy. The deal also strengthens Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas ahead of Jan. 25 parliament elections and could help him fend off a strong challenge by the Islamic militant group Hamas."
I have to say she is doing an excellent job and this brings me to another train of thought.
As a strategy, would it be complete fantasy to believe that Secretary Rice could be the next President of the United States? Here’s how I would suggest this be done.
Vice President Chaney would, toward the end of ’06, step down due to (health Reasons) in favor of Secretary Rice. This would give an incumbent two years to win the nomination and hopefully the Whitehouse.
Being that Hillary will most likely be the Democrats nominee this, IMO, would be a fight we can win!
1) Could Condi get the nomination?
2) Could she beat Hillary one on one?
3) If we are going to elect a woman Prez. Shouldn’t she be a Republican?
