Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice smiles as John Negroponte, right, is introduced as President Bush's nominee for Deputy Secretary of State in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, Friday, Jan. 5, 2007. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)I think I see what's going on now: Condi, tired of Stephen Hadley's non-stop pestering, had to bring in a full-time cockblocker to keep him in check. Good luck with that! She looks happy with her new Negroponte, though, so that's what really matters. Anything to smooth out that tortured forehead.
Later, she met with some boring Asian guy, and I wouldn't even be posting this were it not shot by Sparklefave Yuri Gripas:
