Incompetent, but loyal.
Yes, that describes me, but it also describes Condi Rice, according to conservative allies of dubya (emphasis mine):

"The president has yet to understand that people make policy and not the other way around," a senior national security policy analyst said. "Unlike [former Secretary of State Colin] Powell, Condi is loyal to the president. She is just incompetent on most foreign policy issues."

This morning, Kissinger Barbie failed to woo world leaders at a crisis summit on the current Mideast implosion. Apparently foreign ministers believe the US is dragging its feet in calling for a ceasefire to allow Israel to continue pounding Hezbollah/Lebanon. She responded, well . . . hmm . . . let us think about that for a few days and we'll get back to you.

When she headed over there (finally) this week, the cynic in me said, let's see if girlfriend can raise her odds for the WH or eliminate them. It appears the latter may be more likely.

So if shrub's allies prevail, who might succeed Condi and how much worse could things get?
