Wheee! It'll be fun when Condi moves on to become totally useless in other exciting endeavors.
I always laugh when people say, like, constantly, "OMG, PSP, what are you going to do in January when Condi goes away?" Well, c'mon, it's not like she's going to suddenly wink out of existence! She'll get a book deal for which she'll be paid an obscene amount of money, and her ghost writer will have a wonderful payday. Her book will sell more copies than will be read. The book will be incredibly bland. She'll be all over all the TV shows and magazines. I imagine she'll be invited back to a lot of the Sunday chatfests, because without Bush in office, she won't have easy talking points upon which to fall back. And I'm sure there will be plenty of that famous Condi lifestyle exhibitionism we've come to know and love.
Oh, Condi isn't going anywhere, people.
UPDATE: Ha! I rest my case:
Bush administration officials will be looking for new jobs soon, and there’s another report out today that one of them could be headed to the NFL.
Adam Schefter reported on NFL Network’s NFL GameDay Morning that the San Francisco 49ers want to talk to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice about a high-level position within the organization.
Per Schefter, the 49ers’ ownership believes that Rice would make a great team president and that she would be likely to help them get financing for the new stadium they want.
Rice was already planning to return to the Bay Area when her work in Washington is finished. She previously served as provost at Stanford.
Rice has also been mentioned as a potential candidate to become either the commissioner of the NFL or the head of the players’ union.
