Jay Leno's getting some power players on the "Tonight" show. Last week it was President Obama and yesterday Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made an appearance. Rice talked about growing up as a black girl in Alabama, her brief tenure as a Democrat, her time in Washington, what she's been doing since she left (sleeping more, playing the piano) and about the books she plans to write (one on foreign policy and one about her family).

Asked about her former colleague Dick Cheney's recent criticisms of the Obama administration, Rice sounded a disapproving note, saying she wouldn't disparage our current leadership.
"I know what it's like to have people chirping at you when they perhaps don't know what's going on inside. These are quality people. I know them. They love the country. And they won't make the same decisions, perhaps, that we did. But I believe they'll do what they think is best for the country and I'll give my advice privately and keep it to myself."
Rice comes across as a class act, with a surprisingly decent sense of humor. Watch a portion of the interview below, and the rest of it here.



Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
