Obama And Condoleezza Rice, “Eye View of the World” Apples and Oranges

 US President Barack Obama  met Friday at the White House with former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice for a chat on foreign policy and her new memoir, officials said.

Rice gave the president a “personalized copy” of “Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family,” in which Rice describes her childhood in racially segregated Birmingham, Alabama, a White House spokesman said.

The Oval Office meeting marked the first time Rice has been back to the White House since former president George W. Bush left office.

They discussed “a range of national security issues, and we’re going to leave it at that,” said Tommy Vietor, a White House spokesman.

Deputy White House Press Secretary Bill Burton earlier would not say whether the topics for discussion included Afghanistan or Iraq, subjects on which Obama and Rice have sharply divergent views.
