Condoleezza Rice

Condoleezza Rice is one of those people who I would like to spend some time with her to pick her brain.  She is a very smart lady and has been through so much.  As a child, she was brave enough to attend a formerly segregated school.  She has been a professor at Stanford, served on […]

Comments about the Republican Convention

I watched a little of the Republican convention on Tuesday evening — enough to see some of Ann Romney’s speech. The thing about Ann Romney’s speech was that it seemed to me to be very genuine. She talked about her husband as well as her kids and her health problems. She is clearly proud of […]
