One is the nation's top diplomat with a doctorate in Russian studies who has visited more than 50 foreign countries this year alone. The other is the first-term governor of Alaska who may have seen Russia on a clear day and got her first passport just last year (and, I'll add: barely graduated, after attending 6 different colleges, with a BA in journalism from the University of Idaho, whose admission standards consist of making sure yout tuition check doesn't bounce.)
It's a veritable whirlwind world tour for a self-proclaimed "hockey mom" who had never before met a foreign head of state and whose previous experience abroad was limited to a brief trip to Kuwait and Germany to see Alaskan National Guard troops and visits to Mexico and Canada.
Meanwhile, Rice is closing in on the million mile mark in her overseas travels while secretary. As of July 30, she had flown 958,520 miles on 76 diplomatic missions to 79 different countries, according to the State Department.
Yea, that's a real tough call there.
