In her first exclusive post-administration television interview, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will make her first-ever appearance on ABC’s Daytime’s Emmy® Award-winning talk show, “The View,” live, THURSDAY, JAN. 29. Dr. Rice will discuss the trials and triumphs she faced as Secretary of State, her relationship with former President George W. Bush, the new administration, her future plans, her focus on education in America and how she hopes history and the American people will remember the Bush administration.
Dr. Rice’s appearance is part of the show’s continuing “Red, White & View” campaign which highlights interviews and informational segments featuring prominent political figures. “Red, White & View” is just another example of how “The View” established itself as an important player in politics.
“For politicians, ‘The View’ on ABC is a halfway house in between a CNN interrogation and the razzing of ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.'” (The New York Times, March 2008)
“You need to know about (“The View”) because all the political candidates show up on it eventually, and the panelists engage one another in some of the sharpest and most intensely publicized conversations about various matters of urgent public concerns.” (Arkansas-Democrat Gazette, August 2008)
