Condi Rice's Top Ten
Apparently, Bono took over the reins of London's Independent today. Can you even imagine this happening in the US? No.
Anyway, one of the features was Condoleezza Rice's 10 favorite songs. I am a complete philistine, so I cannot comment on the 5 classical music selections. As for the pop music choices, our Secretary of State seems to dig the classic rock: Cream "Sunshine of Your Love"; Aretha Franklin "Respect"; and Elton John "Rocket Man." But what the heck is up with "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang? Has she been to too many weddings? Also, in context, choosing "anything" by U2 is a bit of a cop-out -- very diplomatic though!
