Now I hope there aren’t any rumors flying about a 2012 Obama/Rice Presidential ticket….

On being asked what she would be doing differently if she were in office, Rice said: “I am not going to chirp at the people inside. I know that it’s a lot easier out here than it is in there, and these are patriotic people who are trying to do their best every day. They don’t need me chirping at them.”  Source

    Rice meets with Obama, then defends his administration’s approach

    Not many authors on a book tour manage to snag a visit with the president of the United States. But Condoleezza Rice is no ordinary book author.

    The former secretary of state and onetime national security adviser met one-on-one with President Obama at the White House on Friday afternoon, after a week of television appearances promoting “Extraordinary, Ordinary People,” her memoir about her parents. The White House said Obama wanted to discuss a range of foreign policy issues with her.

    Later, at an evening appearance at the Aspen Institute, Rice said she and Obama “covered the waterfront.” “Despite the fact there are changes and tussles, there is still a foreign policy community that believes that foreign policy ought to be bipartisan,” she said. “It was really great that he reached out in that way.”

    Rice rolled her eyes at the notion that Obama is a closet Muslim, and she defended him from criticism – led by former vice president Richard B. Cheney – that Obama had weakened the country. “Nothing in this president’s methods suggests this president is other than a defender of America’s interests,” Rice told an audience that included presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett.

    Rice’s book, a deeply personal account of growing up in segregated Alabama, doesn’t touch on the foreign policy controversies of her service for President George W. Bush; that material is reserved for a future volume. But all week Rice has deftly maneuvered political minefields, refusing to join in criticism of the current administration while gently defending the decisions of the last one, including Bush’s move to topple Saddam Hussein.

    “I am not going to chirp at the people inside,” Rice said Wednesday on Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central. “I know that it’s a lot easier out here than it is in there, and these are patriotic people who are trying to do their best every day.”

    Obama meets with Condoleezza Rice, gets copy of her new book

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have been discussing national security — and her new book.
    White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said Obama and Rice met at the White House on Friday for a discussion that covered “a range of national security issues.” No details were disclosed, and Rice left without speaking to reporters.
    However, aides say Rice gave Obama a copy of her book, “Condoleezza Rice: A Memoir of My Extraordinary, Ordinary Family and Me” and a copy of the young adult version for Obama’s daughters, Malia and Sasha.
