Gaddafi’s compound: Condoleeza Rice photos, teddy bears and bunkers (Photos)
Muammar Qadhafi obsessed with Condoleezza Rice?
The strong scent of incense hung heavy in the air.
There, standing in a corner as still as a wax statue, was the leader.
Gaddafi wore a simple white cotton robe and a black Libyan fez, which covered part of his flowing hair. His robe was accented by a brooch in the shape of Africa and a striking colored slash decorated with shapes of Africa. He also wore a pair of highly polished black shoes.
Gaddafi appeared to be the epitome of cool, tall and distinguished, no longer the "mad dog" of the Reagan years.
Reporters and cameramen jockeyed for position and filled the tiny room. Gaddafi remained still and somber, though his face lit up when he saw Rice. Many devout Muslim men do not shake the hands of women, and when Rice approached, Gaddafi simply placed his right hand over his chest, a traditional and respectful welcome.
"The hot gossip in Washington is that Condoleezza Rice might have a new boyfriend. Secretary of State Rice is being linked to Canada's Foreign Minister, Peter MacKay. It's gotta be awkward dating a fellow diplomat. Like today, MacKay had to promise Condi he would get permission from the U.N. before he invaded her." --Jay LenoCondoleezza Rice and Jack Straw
"Actually, I heard that she was trying to learn the Canadian national anthem. They were alone in a room and she was heard going, 'Oh, Canada. Oh, oh, Canada.'" --Jay Leno
"Condoleezza Rice is apparently dating a Canadian politician. It's a proud day for Canada. They're the first nation to put a man on Condoleezza." --David Letterman
"It's rumored in Washington that Condoleezza Rice has a new boyfriend. Allegedly, he's Canada's Foreign Minister, Peter MacKay. Since he's a diplomat and he visits her at the White House, he has to have a Secret Service code name. Do you know what his Secret Service code name is? 'Captain Kirk.' You know why they call him that? Because he's going where no man has gone before." --Jay Leno
"It's been reported that Condoleezza Rice is dating a high level Canadian diplomat. Sources say you can tell because Rice has an extra bounce in her step and is giggling a lot as she prepares for the invasion of Iran."
