Condi Audition Watch More SecState

Condi Audition Watch

More SecState warm-up?

Meanwhile, Jim Hoagland, in a column mostly on Saudi, writes as follows:

"A Post story reporting that Powell's deputy and closest friend, Richard Armitage, recently told the White House that the two would not be around for a second Bush term smoked out strong official denials this week that hint at the true state of affairs: The only people Powell and Armitage have not told about their intentions seem to be those who work at the White House.

They have told co-workers in Washington and relatives, bankers and foreign policy sages in New York. Powell had made indirect but clear public references to his plan to leave, and astute diplomats based here concluded a month or two ago that they were working with a lame-duck chief diplomat 18 months before the end of George W. Bush's electoral mandate.

This burbling about his tenure handicaps Powell in achieving a meaningful legacy in whatever time he has left. That legacy should include the vital task of updating the U.S.-Saudi relationship to reflect the changes brought about by 9/11, the American military victory in Iraq and what one Bush aide calls a "generational commitment" by Americans to transform the Middle East into a more democratic and pacified region that does not directly threaten American lives or interests."

But wait, Hoagland shouldn't worry--Condi's got all that covered per today's op-ed!

Note: I blogged on related topics a few days back. Check it out if you haven't yet.
