QUESTION: Madame Secretary, any
comment on Senator Barack Obama's historical nomination today? It's an historic moment.
QUESTION: It's historic -- and you've said -- and you've spoken before on this issue. I was just wondering if you could just make some brief comments on the historic nature of it.
SECRETARY RICE: Obviously, I'm not going to get into politics. But let me just say that the United States of America is an extraordinary country. It's a country that has overcome many, many, now years, decades, actually a couple of centuries, of trying to make good on its principles. And I think that what we're seeing is an extraordinary expression of the fact that "we the people" is beginning to mean all of us.
And I congratulate both Senator Obama and Senator McCain on their respective campaigns, and Senator Clinton on hers as well. And I look forward to viewing it all from the sidelines as a voter. Thank you.
