A little love for Condi

A reporter asks the tough questions in Greensboro, N.C.

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?"

"Yeah, sure."
