Would you really have Rice for dinner?

Postby dream_017 » Fri Jun 16, 2006 8:41 am

I don't know what the complete list looked like, but I am sure I would not take Condi over some of the ones mentioned.

MSN from Esquire wrote:When Esquire asked men who they'd invite from a list of 14 notable women to a dinner party, they chose Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice — over such stars as Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson.

Rice was followed by Oprah Winfrey and Angelina Jolie in a national survey published in the magazine's July issue. The 29-question survey, conducted by Beta Research Corp., polled 1,083 men aged 25 and older.

Asked which famous man they'd invite to dinner, 37 percent picked "Tonight" host Jay Leno. Bill Clinton placed second, trailed by George Clooney and President Bush.

Men said they most admired former Secretary of State Colin Powell (5.9 percent). Clinton and Bill Gates tied closely behind (5.8 percent) and Bush placed third (5.3 percent).

The president did, however, place first in another category: least admirable man in America. He got 14.8 percent of the vote, while Clinton came in second — again — at 7.8 percent.

According to the survey, most men do not aspire to be "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks. Eighty-five percent said they'd rather be the CEO of a Fortune 500 company than win the Fox talent contest (15 percent).

Who were the 15% who said they'd rather win the American Idol than be a CEO? 8-o


There are some weird, mixed-up people out there.

I, for one, would much rather dine with Condi Rice than Aniston.

probably because it would be more satisfying to punch condi in the face over a bowl of soup than to eat dinner with angelina or aniston.

Condi for Vice Pres.... then Pres... first woman and African-American Pres & Vice Pres in history. All from the Republican Party!?!?!?

Me too, she probably has more intelligence than Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson put together. Plus she knows football.

Oprah's pretty smart too but she probably would talk about Tom Cruise and her book club. :-P

I was just saying that for intelligent conversation alone. I completely forgot that she's a fan of football. All the better. ;-D
