I'm thinking that Augusta National's decision to let in Condi Rice was because nobody much outside South Carolina knew Darla Moore before yesterday.
Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice's comments on immigration during a speech at Duke yesterday have caught the attention of pundits in D.C.
During her remarks Tuesday night Rice said one of her biggest regrets during her time in the Bush adminstration was failing to pass comprehensive immigration reform in 2007. Immigration policies at the state level like in Arizona aren't working, she said.
“That immigrant culture that has renewed us … has been at the core of our strength,” she said. “I don’t know when immigrants became the enemy.”
The N&O first reported her comments after the lecture at Duke's Page Auditorium. Since then they've been relinked and posted on blogs throughout outlets in D.C. including The Huffington Post and The Hill, a D.C. paper that reports on Congress and national politics.
Some political observers have speculated whether Rice might be tapped to be likely GOP-presidential nominee Mitt Romney's running mate, but she has denied such reports.
