Mostly it's reporters trying to get Condi to say what's different about the Bush Administration's "new approach" to the Iraq "situation", as they charmingly call it. Simple question, right? Well, no, because pretty much the entire thing is Condi finding new, boring ways to not answer that question. Finally, near the end, one of the reporters tries a desperate yet kinda fun gambit:
QUESTION: Can you -- one last thing?Silly girl thinks that Condi's got nothing better to do than pass out adjectives to lazy reporters? Better luck next time!
SECRETARY RICE: Yeah.
QUESTION: Do you -- how would you categorize -- if you had to put an adjective in describing how different the new strategy is going to be from the existing, are we talking about a radical overhaul, are we talking about modest changes? Can you just characterize it for us a little bit?
SECRETARY RICE: You know I'm not very good at that, Robin. (Laughter.)
QUESTION: So if you won't answer her question, one more thing. (Laughter.)
SECRETARY RICE: Look, it will undoubtedly be a departure because there is a new set of circumstances. But I can't give you an adjective.
