Condoleezza Rice signs with WMA (William Morris Agency)
Source: Hollywood Reporter

Deal includes representation for books, lectures, media

NEW YORK -- Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has made a key step in her post-Bush administration career: The William Morris Agency announced Wednesday that it has signed her as a client.

The former professor and Stanford provost has been in the Bush administration since the beginning, first as national security adviser and then as secretary of state. Her last day in office was Tuesday morning with the end of the Bush administration.

...

"It was certainly a competitive situation," said Jim Wiatt, chairman and CEO of The William Morris Agency. "She was very thorough about the process and who she would feel most comfortable with and who would be speaking on her behalf."

It's unlikely that Rice will turn up as a talking head, however. The deal includes William Morris representation for books, lecture appearances, philanthropic initiatives, as well as media, sports and communications.

Remember this Freudian slip, which was really more like a Freudian bustier and garter belt with fishnets and SS boots:

"Just the other day, my husband...er, the President..."

9. Just get her the Hell from national security. She failed the country.
She should be deported to Saudi Arabia and be forced to live as a Saudi woman.

10. would`t be nice if she told the truth
the only thing she failed was her own self respect. she was the messenger for a corrupt and bankrupt foreign policy. her last chance of a morsel of redemption was brushed away by a phone call from her former lover

16. I'd heard on NPR that she was planning to go back to Stanford
She could still do both. William Morris is a talent representation agency. They don't actually act as a full-time employer. I think they'd be getting Condi speaking engagements and the like.
