Use The Google!

Keith Olbermann rips Condi Rice a new one on her astounding ignorance of history. I guess a Ph.D. in Poli Sci ain't what it used to be, if it ever was.

  1. Nitpick - don't think it was in poli sci. Not that that is any kind of an excuse for her ignorance.

  2. According to Wikipedia:

    Rice graduated from St. Mary's Academy in 1970. In 1974, at age 19, Rice earned her B.A. in political science and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Denver. In 1975, she obtained her Master's Degree in political science from the University of Notre Dame. She first worked in the State Department in 1977, during the Carter administration, as an intern in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. In 1981, at the age of 26, she received her Ph.D. in Political Science from the Graduate School of International Studies at Denver.

    This information appears to be confirmed by her less explicit official biography:

    [Dr. Rice] earned her bachelor's degree in political science, cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of Denver in 1974; her master's from the University of Notre Dame in 1975; and her Ph.D. from the Graduate School of International Studies at the University of Denver in 1981.
