Commish Condoleezza?

While I love the Idea of Ms. Rice doing just about anything, even NFL commish, I think the league would benefit greatly. But alas, the timing was off…

Rice Punts on NFL Commissioner Post

NASSAU, Bahamas — Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a huge football fan, ruled out applying for the newly opened post of NFL commissioner Wednesday.

“Unfortunately, it came open at the wrong time,” said Rice, who was clearly amused when a reporter posed the question. “Obviously, I’m very busy as secretary of state, and I intend to continue to be secretary of state as long as the president of the United States will have me.”

Rice, an avid follower of the Cleveland Browns and professional football in general, has frequently said she aspires to run the league one day.

In the days since NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced he would retire, Rice’s aides have said she was not interested.


Hopefully that’s so she can be free to run in ’08… Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

    I was wondering about that. She’s often said the NFL Commish position would be her dream job. Nice to see she’s putting the country ahead of her own ambitions.
