Step 1: admitting the problem

Condi Rice en route to Shannon today:

QUESTION: Madame Secretary, I’m going to try again. I think what Warren was asking was a personal question about how you felt. I think a lot of us were seeing that you looked -- you’ll excuse me -- you looked really bad at several times during this trip. I mean, you always look fabulously, but you looked tense. I mean, tell us what you were feeling, like when you were standing up on that podium in Rome and Siniora was saying some of the things that did not quite jive with U.S. policy. Give us a sense personally.

SECRETARY RICE: I don’t know. Maybe I’m just not as self-reflective as you think I am.
