Outgoing Secretary of State and docile White House Negro Condoleezza Rice doesn't want anyone to rush into that whole "Bush legacy" thing:
What is more important than current controversies, she argued, slapping the table for emphasis, is how the decisions will look 25 or 30 years from now. "If you get very focused on whether someone thinks your policies are popular, you won't do the right thing," she said.
Because rushing to judgment on stuff like the performance of the Bush administration is really, really irresponsible and, you know, premature and everything.
In unrelated news, I think we can all agree that the administration of Barack Obama is an unmitigated and unqualified disaster, despite the fact that he hasn't actually taken office yet.
