See Crazy Eyes' confident swagger? She knows who's in charge. See Condi's sour look? She does, too! I've mentioned before that many of Condi's duties have been turned over to the first lady, and last week's stunningly purposeless journey to Afghanistan certainly proved that. That was supposed to be Condi's unnecessary journey! And now, there she is, just there to sign the papers, I guess.
