From the <a href="click here Post</a>;<blockquote>Within the department, Rice is viewed by many rank-and-file employees as an aloof manager who relies on a tight circle of aides, leaving her out of touch with the rest of the staff, in contrast to her predecessor, Colin L. Powell, a retired Army general who won praise from workers for treating them as though they were his "troops." At her last town hall meeting with employees 2 1/2 years ago, Rice told staffers: "I consider myself the chief management officer of this department." But a poll by the American Foreign Service Association indicated that an overwhelming majority did not feel that Rice was their advocate.</blockquote>With Pakistan crumbling, Iraq precariously balanced between the might of <a href="click here and <a href="http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/138947.html">Iranian</a> armies thirsty for its vast oil reserves, and Afghanistan <a href="http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/world/5292106.html">more violent than ever</a> with a resurgent Taliban, the last thing America needs is a bad manager with a strange mix of disillusioned career diplomats and greedy cronies with one foot out the door, all out there representing our country with an elite mercenary army helpfully butchering Iraqi civillians.
Then again, what can you expect when America mistakenly elects the party that devoutly believes government <a href="click here style="font-style: italic;">cannot</span> function</a>?
