This months HRB features a free interview with Condoleezza Rice.
I particularly liked this quote:
And finally you have to look to see whether there are impediments to people doing the right thing. Mostly in good organizations, and the Department of State was certainly one, and I found this at Stanford too, people want to do the right thing — they don’t want to be obstructionist — but sometimes there are things that make it hard for them to do the right thing. For instance, in the Department of State I needed Arab speakers to go to places like Baghdad, so I had to take them out of places like Cairo. But if they left Cairo, their families had to move all the way back to the United States. So we made it possible for their families to stay in Cairo while they served in Baghdad.
I don't know much about her, but I guess this means she intends running for US president next time around.
