Condi Rice Schooled By A 4th Grader

First, college students were too tough for Condi Rice. Now, it's 4th graders who are too much of a challenge. After a speech at a Washington DC elementary school, the Washington Post reports a 4th grade student asked her "What did Rice think about the things President Obama's administration was saying about the methods the Bush administration had used to get information from detainees?" Again, she resorted to the Nixonian "it's-legal-if-the-president-says-it-is" defense.

Lucky for her, the student's question was toned down: he originally wanted to ask her, "If you would work for Obama's administration, would you push for torture?" Is the media paying attention? That's how you ask tough questions.
