Susan Rice Interview with Der Spiegel : "He bows to nobody in his understanding of this world."
SPIEGEL: It is unusual for a US presidential candidate to travel to Europe in the middle of the campaign. Why is Barack Obama coming?

Susan Rice: Senator Obama believes it is critically important for the United States and Europe to cooperate far more effectively than we have in recent years. None of us can tackle the critical global challenges we face in isolation -- be it terrorism, proliferation, climate change, disease, poverty or energy security. Obama will want to discuss in Europe and Germany how we each view these challenges and how we can best address them together.

SPIEGEL: Critics say the trip is nothing but a PR stunt to strengthen his foreign-policy credentials and that he has only rarely been to Europe before.

Rice: Senator Obama has travelled to Europe, Africa, the Middle East and South Asia many times before. He lived in Asia. He bows to nobody in his understanding of this world. This trip will be yet another opportunity for Senator Obama to exchange views with the leaders of countries whose partnership is critically important to US national security.

She just simply kicks ass.

6. Condi...
..speaking of, has refused to say who she was going to vote for...

If she were voting for McCain, what would be the harm in saying it? It's not as if she is considered an african-american leader that would offend the AA community by saying she was voting for McCain or anything.

9. So funny we have a
Rice who talks like this on Foreign Policy.

Those who are saying "stunt" are the ones who are jealous and can't imagine the knowledge an intelligent person who runs his own campaign would gather visiting these countries at this time in history.
