Rice Fails to Repair Rifts, Officials Say: Interesting Washington Post analysis of Condoleeza Rice's role in the Bush Administration. It seems the Administration is badly divided between the neoconservatives headed by Cheney and Rumsfeld and 'moderate' republicans headed by Powell, and Bush and his closest advisor Rice is unable to resolve the conflicts. We will remember that a key decision of Bush in the very first days of his regime was to permit Cheney to nominate key cabinet members, and this is what has given the radical neo-conservatives such a strong role in the Bush Administration.
