[Media Source*] The "Church in China" part is what caught my eye.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in a public forum in Tokyo over the weekend that she is a "deeply religious person." In Beijing, she demonstrated how faith and strategy can converge...
Rice sat in the front row of the church - also once visited by Secretary of State Madeleine Albright - which was so crowded that many worshippers had to listen on loudspeakers outside. She listened to a translation of the service wearing headphones that she removed to sing hymns she knew by heart. In keeping with local custom, she was welcomed as "Sister Rice." In the guest book at the state-sanctioned church, she wrote, "Yours in Christ."
I wonder what type of church Rice attended as China isn't known to be legally friendly towards those of faith.
Rice's visit was aimed at encouraging China to intensify efforts to bring North Korea back to the six-party table as North Korea is seeking bi-lateral talks (which some liberals have suggested before but they forget that bi-lateral talks failed under Clinton).
She also had some words for Europe who is seeking to sell weapons to China.
"It is the United States, not Europe, that is defending the Pacific," Rice said.
It seems not only is she spiritual, but that Rice is tough as well. Maybe she could run for President someday.

She probably attended one of the government approved, and controlled, Three Self Churches. I bet the communist authorities loved telling that congregation that Rice is "mildly pro-choice". That must be similar to being mildly pregnant.
Grrrr! And to think she would have been the perfect Presidential candidate for the GOP too! I don't think with her being slightly "pro-choice" that the GOP base is going to be happy with her as a potential Prez.
Oh well...we just have to find someone else to beat Hillary.
