As the U.S. Presidential contest gains momentum, there has been talk of the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, who needs to win over a wider range of his fellow citizens, choosing political celebrity Condoleezza Rice as his potential Vice-President. So far Dr Rice has said she is not interested in running for political office, and that usually the good appointments in her life have just happened to her. Well, if Romney were still to offer her the opportunity, I suppose that might be construed by some as having “happened” to her.
Be that as it may, the renewed interest in Dr Rice has attracted many new visitors to my blog article on her claims of fluency in Russian.

So, by listing my personal favourites, I would like to try to drum up more support for those blog subjects that I have found more satisfying to write about than Dr Rice. I shall probably succeed, but only for the usual publicity span of three or four days.
