I promised a podium shot roundup for this week, and here it is. Click for a larger version. But here's the problem: go do a Yahoo News search for photos of Condi, and you'll be shocked to see that this week alone merited, in their view, nearly 30 pages of photos. And it's not like they're terribly compelling pictures. Is Condi the most photographed non-elected official in US history? I believe this shot, especially, says it all:
