The previous Rice got the job with Bush.

Condi Rice was a totally loyal suck-up who started to refer to W as her husband. He appointed her for the same reason he tried to appoint Harriet Myers to the Supreme Court: he cares more about loyalty than other qualities. He likes women to be deferential (odd, given his mother).

Rice was too hung up on the Soviet Union to be competent at national security. I think Mitt listened to her during the campaign since he referred to Russia as our most important enemy <eyeroll>.
