Powell resigns; Rice next?

Here is the best part of this story to me: the first African-American Secretary of State is about to be replaced by the the first female African-American Secretary of State, both nominated by a Republican president from the South.

This is not the end of the "can't we all get along" campaign, but it certainly deserves more than a footnote in the telling of the story.

I offer this comment as the parent of two Hispanic children who can never be president (unless we amend the Constitution), but who could each be Secretary of State.
