Condoleeza Rice, pianist

One insight into why the Bush administration botched America's first fully improvised war.

Kaplan Well what about just playing with abandon and disregarding all that tidiness, organization, discipline and just going for it?

Rice Well, one reason that I love Brahms and Mozart is one can't play with abandon. You have to be pretty disciplined. I'm one of those people now if you put it in front of me, I can read it. But if you ask me to play it by ear or with improvisation, I have much harder time, so I guess I'm tidy and disciplined even when I'm playing the piano.

Bill Clinton never looked cooler.
