With Bluewater Comics quickly gaining a reputation as the Biography Channel of the comics industry, it is fortunate that as its brand-name recognition and sales have increased, so has the quality of its biographical books. "Condoleezza Rice" is a case in point. Not only did Bluewater luck out by having its subject making headlines again regarding Afghanistan around the time the book hit shelves, but the company also was fortunate to have chosen writer Chris Ward to chronicle the life story of our first female African-American secretary of state.

President-elect Bush's new foreign-policy team was on view this week in Washington, and it was a fascinating show. Whether or not you agree with their views, Secretary of State-designate Colin Powell and upcoming national security adviser Condoleezza Rice certainly grab your attention. Both are highly talented, disciplined, charismatic and very skilled public performers, with the kind of star quality one expects more from political candidates than from appointed officials.

George W. Bush warned potential enemies yesterday not to mistake this nation's unresolved presidential election for an opportunity to act against America. "I would warn them not to," Bush told reporters here. "I have all the confidence in the world that the Clinton administration and the next administration, which I hope is the Bush administration, will do whatever it takes to send a chilling signal to terrorists that we'll protect our property and our people. " Bush spoke as cameras rolled during his visit with Condoleezza Rice, whom he is expected to appoint as his national security adviser.

National security adviser Condoleezza Rice, who once dreamed of becoming a concert pianist, has been performing in public since age 4. Now she is preparing for the role of a lifetime. The soft-spoken foreign-policy expert will serve as President Bush's chief defender Thursday in a televised appearance before the panel investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Her mission is to rebut allegations that Bush failed to deal with the terrorist threat before Sept. 11, but her own reputation is also on the line.

Condoleezza Rice won endorsement as secretary of state from a Senate panel yesterday, assuring skeptical Democrats that she welcomed debate about the nation's foreign- policy course and wouldn't sugarcoat advice to President Bush. In her second day of testimony, Rice acknowledged for the first time that the Bush administration made some bad decisions in Iraq, but insisted that removing Saddam Hussein from power was the best chance to open a new, more peaceful chapter in the Middle East.

IT'S AMAZING! The Iraqi government releases video of Saddam being interrogated. I can only assume that this interrogation happened a looooong time ago because, the last time I checked, we had invented sound to go along with moving images. Now I knew Saddam was old, but not THAT old! Even more amazing? No one has asked why there wasn't any sound! I've yet to read an explanation as to why, in this day and age, they decide to put out a "Silent Saddam Movie. " Oh, but he's rundown, he's wringing his hands, he's worried, etc. - but apparently he said something that someone didn't like.

So it turns out that Erwin Chemerinsky is going west, after all. Last week, citing the Duke professor's "controversial" public positions, the University of California, Irvine, withdrew an offer to make him dean of its new law school. But it reinstated the offer after a firestorm of protest, including a letter signed by hundreds of faculty members. That's exactly as it should be. As the letter noted, "unacceptable ideological considerations" clearly caused the university to break its initial deal with the left-leaning Chemerinsky.

Condoleezza Rice starts her new job today as secretary of state, after critics of her role in the Iraq war mounted the strongest Senate opposition to a nominee for the job in 180 years. Rice was sworn in last night, hours after the Senate voted, 85-13, to confirm her as the first African- American woman to serve in the position first held by Thomas Jefferson. Her confirmation came over the objections of Democrats who assailed her role as an architect of the war in Iraq and the global anti-terrorism campaign during the four years she served as national security adviser to President Bush.

Condoleezza Rice should testify, in public and under oath, before the commission reviewing the Sept. 11 attacks. Reasonable arguments line each side of the debate over whether the national security adviser should do so. But because of that horrible day's singular nature and this commission's singular mission, President Bush should allow Rice to testify. Executive privilege should not be dismissed lightly. A president needs advisers who feel free to offer candid, complete opinions, without worrying about future subpoenas.

Honor roll call Last year, I had the privilege to escort my father on a trip to Washington with the Honor Flight Philadelphia group, which takes mostly older veterans to the National World War II Memorial and many others. We filled seven buses with dozens of veterans. This trip meant so much to them and to all of us. Sadly, many World War II veterans did not live long enough to see the memorial, which opened in 2004. Honor Flight (honorflightphiladelphia.org) seeks to find as many of the remaining men and women as possible and take them there free on an upcoming trip.

  Bomboy is editor of the Constitution Daily blog at the National Constitution Center . As GOP presumed nominee Mitt Romney tours overseas, talk continues about former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's potential effect on the presidential race. One of Rice's strong points as a potential Romney running mate is her considerable experience as a foreign policy expert. While the other rumored Romney running mates made appearances on Romney's behalf in the past week in the United States, Rice published an editorial in the Financial Times that echoed her recent speeches about America reclaiming its role as a world leader.

It began like almost any other orchestra summer idyll, with Leonard Bernstein's Candide Overture . And then, with the middle movement of a Mozart piano concerto, Tuesday night's Philadelphia Orchestra concert at the Mann Center suddenly took on rare auras of celebrity, politics, and the general idea that history of a sort was in the making. The source of the extra-musical messaging was the soloist: Condoleezza Rice, former national security advisor, 66th U.S. secretary of state and public face of the Bush 43 administration.

One of the more revealing dramas of the World Economic Forum was the major speech by Condoleezza Rice. When she took the podium, looking elegant in a black suit and silver choker, the applause was tepid. This was an audience made up of 1,000 of the world's top CEOs and many top government leaders, along with top media leaders, scientists and academics. Many were reeling from the wild gyrations of the market this week in response to a U.S. bank and mortgage crisis they feared would infect the global economy.

The United States accused Syria yesterday of playing a role in last week's deadly suicide bombing in Tel Aviv, Israel, as the Bush administration, backed by France, sought to increase pressure on Damascus on multiple fronts. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made the assertion on the sidelines at an international conference in London to help the Palestinian leaders prepare for statehood. British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who convened the one-day session, said: "This is a moment of opportunity.
