ABSTRACT
The article provides background information on United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who served during the second term of President George W. Bush. Rice has focused on reinvigorating diplomatic initiatives in the Bush administration. When Rice was sworn in as Secretary of State, the nation was questioning the war effort in Iraq. Other issues confronting Rice included the wider war on terror, concerns over the nuclear capabilities of Iran and North Korea, a series of victories by left-wing presidential candidates in South America, a mounting trade deficit with China, and a rising tide of anti-Americanism brought on by the war in Iraq. Rice was President George W. Bush's national security advisor during his first term, the first woman ever named to that position.
