An Aug. 10 headline that read "Can Rice handle the pressure?" caught my eye on Sunday, so I turned to read the article.
It was a story about the panel of football experts who will be determining the four college teams to compete in the national championship playoffs.
Here's the rub: Condoleezza Rice was one of 13 panelists; Condoleezza Rice was the only woman. Yet the headline was about if she--not anyone else--could handle the pressure.
A little bit of sexism here, perhaps? Ms. Rice has surely demonstrated her ability to handle the pressure of being Secretary of State. You think a little college football game will put her over the edge?
