The same cannot be said for Condi Rice and Margaret Spellings, both of whom were smooched following their nominations. On one hand, we’re used to seeing a man kiss a woman on the cheek as a way of saying hello, goodbye, congratulations, or I expect your loyalty above all else and if I don’t get it you’ll be on the speaking circuit with Colin.
But it is a bit strange to see an employer kiss an employee who has just been given a promotion. Wouldn’t a firm handshake (the same one given to the men who were nominated for cabinet positions) have done the trick? And then there is the bigger question: Why would the FCC allow this kind of debauchery during a daytime telecast?
