If you want a role model and someone with intellect and class, that’s Condi Rice. She makes Hillary and Michelle look like the lightweight, conniving opportunists that they are. They need props and excuses – Rice doesn’t.

Condoleezza Rice: Trump may sound different but puts America first
President Donald Trump may sound different than other presidents, but he believes in American values and tries to act in the best interest of the United States, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told CNBC on Wednesday.
“I believe every president of the United States stands for our values,” said Rice, who served as secretary of State and national security advisor during the presidency of George W. Bush. “You heard President Trump say, for instance, after the Syrian chemical attack, we can’t let that stand. What he was saying was the president of the United States can’t let that stand.”
From the sidelines of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit at the Olympia Fields Country Club in Illinois, Rice said on “Squawk Box” Trump knows the importance of alliances and expects him to forge ties with Democracies around the world.
“While the language may be different, and we might talk about needing to deal with policy, I think you’re going to see … that Americans’ interests in values are always linked,” Rice said.
Obama and the rest of the liberal establishment do not understand how Rice can respect President Trump.
Their priority is not defending our values. And long gone is the respect Democrats used to show Republicans, even in the face of profound disagreement.
Condoleezza Rice has been around long enough to remember that in the end we are all supposed to be on the same team: America’s team. But, Barack Obama changed the political game.
Democrats decided that they were willing to undermine the whole country for their shot at power.
They no longer cherish American values. Instead, they put the interests of the global elite before the American people, while abandoning freedom, respect, and the foundation of our Republic.
This is why they cannot accept Donald Trump as the duly elected president, and why they cannot show him the basic respect his office deserves. They refuse to find common ground with him and the Republicans, and they will not admit that our President has done anything – no matter how small – right.
There is also something deeper that the Democrats, and Obama in particular, have forgotten. Our American values determine what our interests are. The Democrats are too busy pushing their anti-American interests to see that most of us still put a priority on the values which have given us so much, including our freedom.
These next eight years are going to be a big reminder to them that no matter what principles they may have tossed aside, the rest of us will always back patriots.
Our country is still the shining city on the hill. The world looks to us for leadership. Thankfully, we have finally elected a President who can be that world leader once again.
