Condoleezza Rice is the chief foreign policy adviser to Republican presidential candidate Governor George W. Bush.
She is a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, and a tenured professor in the university's political science department. Following her initial Hoover Institution affiliation (she was a fellow from 1985 to 1986), Ms. Rice went to Washington, D.C. to work on nuclear strategic planning at the Joint Chiefs of Staff as part of a Council on Foreign Relations fellowship. She came back to Stanford when the fellowship ended.
Ms. Rice returned to Washington in 1989 when she was director of Soviet and East European affairs with the National Security Council. She also was appointed special assistant to the president for national security affairs and senior director for Soviet affairs at the National Security Council under President George Bush. In those roles, she helped bring democratic reforms to Poland, and played a vital role in crafting many of the Bush administration's policies with the former Soviet Union.
