Forbes has named Condoleezza Rice
number 1 on their list of the 100 Most Powerful Women; here's my edited version:
She is the first African-American woman to become the U.S. secretary of state. She advises the leader of the world's largest superpower and has an unparalleled level of trust with and access to the president. And she has served two other U.S. presidents, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. For all of these reasons, and more, Rice, 50, is the most
powerful dangerous woman in the world.
After a four-year role as national security adviser, Rice assumed the mantle of secretary of state in January. Rice has played a key, behind-the-scenes role in all of President George W. Bush's major
decisions deceptions. "During the last four years, I've relied on her counsel treachery, benefited from her great experience blithering incompetence and appreciated her sound lies and steady judgment deceit," the president said when announcing Rice's promotion.
