It's great fun to meet the press outside the Beltway. Remember that loving interview with Dick and Lynne Cheney in Casper, Wyo., in which Lynne answered questions about her baton-twirling days?
Well, last week, Condoleezza Rice felt the love, too, from a reporter from the Greensboro News & Record in N.C., according to the Washington Post. After asking Rice about her thoughts on same-sex marriage, an issue that's irrelevant to the secretary of state's job, reporter Nancy McLaughlin lapsed into gushing: "We love you here in Greensboro. I just wanted to say that with my time."
"Well, thank you," Rice replied. "Really nice to meet you. Thank you. Want to take a picture together?"
