George and Condi Sittin' in a Tree...
Here are some of the Excerpts from Condoleezza Rice's new Biography called "Condi's Rescue Mission"
And Rice was drawn to Bush. "First of all, I thought he was wonderful to be around," she recalled, sitting on the couch in her State Department office. "He was warm and funny and easy to be around. I thought he had just an incredibly inquisitive mind ... You could barely finish an explanation before he was digging into it."
Bush was also a bad boy. And Rice, according to friends and family, had a thing for bad boys.
said Jane Robinett, Rice's best Notre Dame friend: John "Dubie" Dubenetzky, cocky and handsome with wavy blond hair, was less deferential than Wayne Bullock, the sweet fullback who had moved Condi's boxes into Lewis Hall.
Brenda Hamberry-Green, her Palo Alto hairdresser, who had spent years commiserating with Rice over how hard it was for successful black women to find a good man, noticed a change when Rice started working for Bush. "He fills that need," Hamberry-Green decided. "Bush is her feed."
"There was this connective stuff—that was really fully under way by the summer of 1999," said Rice's friend Coit "Chip" Blacker. "There's a funny kind of transfer of energy and ideas that's almost—not random, but unstructured. It's as though they're Siamese twins joined at the frontal lobe."
They point to her remark at a Washington dinner party in 2004, when she said, "As I was telling my husb—" before abruptly correcting herself, "As I was telling President Bush ... "
Even Rice's friends, most of whom happen to be Democrats, say her affection for Bush blinded her to his failings. "She thought he could do no wrong," said one.
Of course, her friends and her stepmother Clara Rice offered a simpler explanation for why she stayed: "she just can't say no to that man."
