All about Condi

My latest bloggingheads diavlog is now online. This time my partner is Washington Post diplomatic correspondent Glenn Kessler, to discuss his new book, The Confidante: Condoleezza Rice and the Creation of the Bush Legacy.

Topics discussed include Rice's tenure at NSC and State, Dick Cheney's brain, a defense of Karen Hughes (also available at the New York Times website), and Condi's future outside of government.

Go check it out.

In response to Syriaís willingness to attend Annapolis against the wishes of Iran, the U.S. could follow through by taking the handcuffs off of Israeli attempts to negotiate directly with Syria. Iíve posted about some of the positive consequences of a deal with Syria on my group blog here:

Uncle Dick's brain? In a jar of formaldehyde, hopefully.
