Big disappointment

I was a big fan of Condi Rice and had high hopes for what she would bring to the administration. Needless to say, I've been disappointed.

David Corn lays out some details, here: http://blogs.cqpolitics.com/davidcorn/

Now, Rice has proven to be one of the better one among the Bush circle, but that turns out to be a low bar indeed. While Bush deserves the lion's share of the blame because he's the boss, the brutal truth of the matter is that Rice has not done the kind of job the U.S. public deserved. I'm not entirely sure why that is. She seems intelligent and capable enough, but one wonders if, like many Bush aides, she didn't forget who she was really working for. Remember that hapless aide who told Sen. Levin about her "oath to the president" that prompted a civics lesson from the senator? Did Rice forget that her primary responsibility was to the American people?
