He mentions that she was linked to a man once -- back in college.
Even if Rice is heterosexual, however, it is fascinating and mind-boggling that this woman whose best male friend is an openly gay liberal and whose best female "friend" is a "liberal progressive," would work for a president who has opposed every gay rights initiative and tried to enshrine religious hatred in the Constitution. Kessler, who is even-handed (and the bulk of whose book is about foreign policy, where he offers many interesting new insights, which we also discussed at length), reminded me that Rice doesn't work on the domestic side and only works on foreign policy, so she can't be held responsible for Bush's positions on those issues.
Condi has always insisted they are "just friends." But Bumiller suggested that relationship might go beyond the friendly kind.
According to Bumiller, Washington visits Condi "on the weekends" and has gone to Camp David for Thanksgiving.

Not only did he marry time and time again, but he peppered just about all of his guests with a barrage of questions about their marital status and aspirations - especially if they were single.
Now Piers Morgan has taken over in the King slot at CNN.
I'll give him this - he waited until the very last segment of the show to bring on the matrimonial inquisition.
But then he spent that entire segment on it, and teased it with this: Rice replies that she always expected to be married but "you don't get married in the abstract.Blacker, whose partner is also mentioned, advised Al Gore's campaign in 2000, while his close friend Rice became a chief confidante to a president who has tried to make gays into second class citizens in the U. She and Rice and Blacker (again, who has a partner) are discussed as a "second family," a term Bean uses, also saying that, "on friends, [Rice] goes narrow and deep."According to newly revealed information in the book (which Kessler found through real estate records), the two women, Rice and Bean (yes, hilarious), own a home together and have a line of credit together.
