That whole article about what Condi wears pisses me off. Somebody dedicated resources to writing those useless musings, and then tried to make it sound worthy by inserting tag lines such as "sexy but powerful" or "feminine empowerment".
First, we can get past the point that women are as capable as men, regardless of what they're wearing. I think most rational people would agree to this. So why not write an article that actually has some insight? For example, why not write something about how ridiculously hypocritical it is for anybody from the Bush administration to talk about giving Lebanon the right to self-determination only one year after they invaded a sovereign country and dicacted the terms of its future? I don't care if Condi is wearing lingerie, the stuff that spills out of her mouth is still rubbish.
Mind you this is typical (American) media. I.E. let's not cover the facts or even explore the story, let's just focus on some insignificant little detail that can be spun in a light hearted "not have to get anybody thinking" type manner.
