Secretary Rice Taking Charge

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Blogs for Bush)

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice does not use e-mail. She is no fan of long memos and papers. She is focused on "a few key priorities," aides say, and her inner circle's motto is "no wasted motion."

For nearly four months, the State Department has been adapting to Miss Rice's management style, but many employees still are grappling with the new rules.

This differs dramatically from how Colin Powell led the department, as he was more of a Father figure who seemed interested in the smallest details of the State Department and was only an email away from contact (usually within minutes). Condi Rice on the other hand, seems to be more focused on having the "trains run on time," and seems to value on what she spends her energy on as well as making sure her boss's (i.e. President Bush) objectives are met.

"History shows that the best secretaries of state focus on a few key priorities," said Jim Wilkinson, a senior adviser to Miss Rice. "The president has given his foreign policy team its mission, and the secretary is focusing the department on achieving these priorities."

Condi Rice already has a lot on her plate right now, including difusing the Newsweek scandal that has threatened U.S. relations with the Muslim world. Although some of her staff are upset that they are no longer on the "inside" as they were will Powell, they are forgetting that Condi's place is to serve the President and his agenda's, hence the whole reason for the department being formed in the first place.
