Two Days Of The Condi


The not-so-candid Condi came to Ottawa yesterday and got down to shiny, gold brass tacks:

Canadians need to cool the rhetoric in the softwood lumber trade row so it doesn't sour an otherwise great relationship with the United States, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday after failing to make headway in talks with Canadian ministers.

Then she got a little testy:

Rice bristled when asked how the U.S. could be trusted when it doesn't live up to its international agreements.

"Well, I think the word of the United States has been as good as gold in its international dealings and its agreements," she snapped.

Then she bailed out and fled Canuckistan ahead of schedule:

...local media in Ottawa reported this morning that Condi Rice canceled some interviews etc and rushed back to Washington based upon a phone call.

Didn't know Hawks were so chicken, not to mention Condhors(d'oeuvres).

A third day might have made things interesting.
