The Secretary of the State picks my beloved Steelers:
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s travels usually take her to far-flung capitals, but this weekend she’s planning a journey closer to home and close to her football fan’s heart.
Rice says she will attend Super Bowl XL in Detroit, and she’s picking the Pittsburgh Steelers to win — even though she doubted the team in its run-up to Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
“I picked Pittsburgh to beat Cincinnati; I have picked against them every game since,” Rice ruefully told reporters Tuesday. “I’m not picking against them again.”
Let’s hope Condi Rice is better with her Superbowl picks than she was with the Palestinian election.
