Condi has no time
Diplomacy's most powerful woman, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, has turned down a dinner date with other female foreign ministers to discuss women's rights, citing a busy schedule. Fifteen of the 17 female foreign ministers at the U.N. General Assembly are to attend Sunday's dinner, hosted by Sweden, which said Rice would not be there. "There is no slight intended. There are many different scheduling demands on the secretary," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said, adding Rice had other diplomatic engagements on Sunday.
No slight, sure... What is it this time? A Broadway show? Shoes to buy? A tennis match?
