White House adviser Rice 'likely' to succeed Powell
I think this would be a great move. Condoleeza Rice's personal positions on foreign policy are much closer to the president's than those of Colin Powell. Secreatary Powell is a great american and really went to bat for us in the UN running up to the Iraq war, but it is obvious he has very different opinions from the president in several key areas (see Powerline - The Cabinet Empties.)
Mrs. Rice has exceptional qualifications and I hope she is offered the position.
