Condy Rice is gonna be the opposite of Powell's thoughtful and consensus building approach to international relations. Rice is so conservative and unilateralist that the Christian right loves her - and in general the Christian right isnt too friendly with women or blacks in power.

That may have been Powell desired approach, but what has Bush actually DONE these past four years?

Unilaterally commit inadequate numbers of troops with insufficient planning. The exact oppositeof the 'Powell Doctrine'. Powell in the Bsh cabinet was as comforting as an old shoe in a hurricane. It might may you feel good, but it ultimately does little to solve the problem.

Powell was a good guy to have around. Now, the most moderate member of the Bush team is going to be George W himself, all of his subordinates are even further to the right than he is.
