We're so torn: no male politician would get a 618-word review of his outfit in the Washington Post. And yet, Condi: we don't know if we want to make out with her or be her! Ooh, maybe we could be her and make out with ourselves!
She was not hiding behind matronliness, androgyny or the stereotype of the steel magnolia. Rice brought her full self to the world stage -- and that included her sexuality. It was not overt or inappropriate. If it was distracting, it is only because it is so rare.Well, we don't know if that's entirely true. If that "full self" business were the case, we'd probably expect to see her in some Birkenstocks and "comfy" pants. —C.S.
