(Diddy as Condi, 08-28-05, Reuters)
Were you worried? Worried that Condi wouldn't have anything to do? Fear not, because Condi has signed with the William Morris Agency:
WMA co-chief operating officer Wayne Kabak said that the agency was struck by her well-rounded resume in policy, politics and music, her interest in sports and other areas. Rice is an accomplished concert pianist but also a big-time NFL fan.
"It's more than just books, it's much more than just lectures," Kaback said. "We're here to help her create and enhance an agenda that is very important to her in her post-government career."
That will also include philanthropic efforts, particularly her interest in classical music, her efforts to get disadvantaged children college educations and initiatives to help U.S. children become global citizens.
Sounds philanthropic! Also: lucrative. WMA wouldn't have taken her on without being sure she'd bring home the bacon. Isn't it nice to know that Condi will be so richly rewarded for her fine performance as secretary of state and (especially) national security adviser?
It's too bad Condi isn't a little more imaginative, because I love Defamer's idea:
Condoleezza Rice has signed with WMA, who'll negotiate books, speaking engagements, and For Condoleezza or Money, a potential reality show in which a mansion full of horny twentysomethings would compete for her love.
Now THAT I would pay to see.
