Rice readies memoir No. 2

(CNN) – Condoleezza Rice's memoir chronicling her time in Washington, D.C. will hit book shelves Nov. 1, according to a release from the publisher.

In "No Higher Honor: A Memoir Of My Years in Washington," set for publication by Crown Publishers, Rice will share her experiences as national security adviser and secretary of state in the George W. Bush administration, as well as recount the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 and her experience appearing before the 9/11 Commission.

"In No Higher Honor, Rice shares her unique perspective on the most consequential political, diplomatic, and security issues of the administration," the release said. "She also reveals new details about the contentious debates in the lead-up to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq."

Rice's previous memoir "Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family," explored her upbringing in segregation-era Birmingham, Alabama.

She returned to Stanford University as a professor and director of its Global Center for Business and the Economy at the end of Bush's presidency.

– CNN's Steve Brusk contributed to this report.

    More Bush reconstructionist history and propaganda from a team that made all the wrong decisions.

    They're all selling books - nothing more.

    I guess they didn't make enough off of the two wars and all the Haliburton and other cash funnelled their way.

    I wouldn't waste one penny on ANY of their "books". Idiots, I'm sure, will buy them so they can praise their republican gods even more. The eye of that needle is no bigger now than it was when the Bible was written.

    Will it contain much about her relation with G.W. Bush?

    What a bunch of busy beavers Bush's nearest and dearest have become. Dick Cheney also has a book (and a media blitz promoting said book) due to be released soon. Gonna blow the heads right off of Washington insiders (or so he says). Gotta give the GOPers their due, though. They DO love writing about themselves, don't they?

    Condi Rice... What great class and intelligence. The country owes her much for her service to this country.

    Maybe in one of her "memoirs" she could tell the truth.

    Gee maybe she will implicate herself and can then be brought up on charges of treason with Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld! Will she talk about how they tanked the American economy and how they feel about the blood of our men and women in uniform on their hands for a war based upon a lie!

    Condi Rice deserves our thanks for all her public service to our nation. She is intelligent, patriotic, humble, talented and has a moral compass that few in politics have.

    @ Democrat Class Warfare – Destroying the economy, destroying the country

    Joe Wilson having put me in a Christian state of mind today, I will extend to GW, Condi, Rumney, Dick Cheney, and the rest of the GOPer clan the same Christian benevolence as they in turn extended to not only America, but the world as a whole during their 8 year reign.

    And for YOU, my friend, an additional treat:

    May the Lord shine His face upon you, and give you peace.

    It's a shame she couldn't stay on in the White House, Hillary Clinton has much to learn from her.

    Maybe she can join up with Clarence Thomas to create the second best selling book of fiction in history..

    Condoleeza Rice has a record of complete failure as National Security Advisor and Secretary of State. No wonder the reactionaries think she did a good job.

    Will she be also interviewed about her book? as Christine O'Donnell did. I hope she won't say "I don't want to talk about torture".

    Def had high hopes for her at the start of her tenure. But for me, she played a significant unwavering role in leading us to war based on bizarrely slim evidence. She nor anyone else in the bush admin seemed to recognize that war is a last resort.

    Why do we give domestic terrorists the spotlight? This woman was instrumental in the demise of our economy and aided in the killing of our American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan along with 1000's of innocent Iraq and Afghanistan people. Now we should celebrate her? I think not.

    She along with the rest of the shrub thugs should be behind bars.

    I'm glad we don't have her and her band of ideologues running the country into the ground and ruining the reputation of the US overseas. The only good thing I can think of to say aout the Bush years is because they were such a disaster there is no chance the country will elect Rick Perry in 2012.
