Condoleezza Rice talks race with Jon Stewart

Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Wednesday night. The conversation centered around her new book "Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family," which chronicles her life growing up in the segregated South and the role her parents' determination and focus on education played in her life.

At the top of the interview, Stewart mentioned that he had met Rice at a book expo. "I was very charmed and very upset with you for charming me," said Stewart. Talk eventually turned to foreign policy and some domestic policy.

While fawning all over her remember that the Warrior Princess is as culpable as Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld for the invasion of Iraq. You know the unfunded warfare and subsequent nation building that your children and their children's children will be paying for. Now rush right out and buy her book. She needs the money. She enjoys the finer things in life.

Eric Cantor was Stewart's guest the day before, and received a warm greeting from the crowd and a fair hearing from Stewart.

I hope all high profile Republicans will go on his show.
