Dick and Condi

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Our must-read of the day comes from Michael Hirsh and Mark Hosenball of Newsweek, who have a good article up on the conflict between Condi Rice and Dick Cheney over such issues as Iran. It is essentially a battle for control of whatever is left of Bush's foreign policy.

In a nutshell, as one might expect: She wants diplomacy; he wants war. (Although one could argue, and should, that they've both had a key hand in the unmitigated disaster that has been Bush's foreign policy. She was just as much, or almost as much, a warmongerer on Iraq, for example. Needless to say, though, she's much, much more preferable than he.) But read the whole thing.
