Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice appeared on “The Daily Show” last night to plug her new book, “No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washington.” During the extended interview, Rice was grilled by Jon Stewart about the evidence the Bush administration used as justification for invading Iraq in 2003. But, before they got into that spirited discussion, Stewart started with a light moment, asking Rice about the weird fascination the recently-killed Lybian dictator Moammar Gadhafi had with her.
Rice recounted a time when she went to visit the despot, after he had given up his WMDs, and at the end of the visit, she was presented a video. Just hearing Rice tell the tale was enough to creep Stewart out, especially when she mentioned the title of a special song Gadhafi wrote for her.
