9. Her failure at diplomacy was a failure to USE diplomacy, period.
And actually, there's a little movement afoot in the admin to declare Rice incompetent, so I wouldn't say the right wing is universal in its support of her. I think the caller is pinpointing an irrelevant fact, that gender is the reason Condi Rice is a failure. Sounds like he was puffing up his own self, with his "I was there, therefore I KNOW " angle.
