Rice said she understands why students and faculty planned to protest, and she embraced their right to object even as she defended the war in Iraq.
"People have the right to protest, but I hope when they protest they realize also that people now have a right to protest in Baghdad and Kabul, and that's a very big breakthrough for the international community," Rice said Monday before the BC commencement.

That might be a hard concept to swallow for the Kim Jung Il/Stalinist Angry Leftoids who screech that the MSM leans to the right because it actually presents the elected Administration's point of view, even if only to cheap-shot the GWB point of view.
This weekend, Pravda-editor Huffington was on C-Span explaining how "America" supported her ultra-left nomenklatura on her eponymous rant-sheet.

What a concept! Let's draft that woman for Prez in '08!
