this life goal: "She is passionate about football and often states that she would someday like to become the commissioner of the National Football League." http://www.answers.com/topic/condoleezza-rice
I'm serious. George Bush was a sports fanatic. His adviser Karen Hughes was a sports fanatic. Condoleeza Rice is. Wanting to stay fit is one thing. This fanaticism with televised competitive sports is the same mentality of all who say things like America is #1, or will be #1 again, WHERE #1 means something that can be measured materially, by somehow "winning" vs. others, rather than #1 in terms of our having the best Constitution, i.e., Constitutionally-protected freedoms, #1 in terms of something virtuous.
(I disagree with your assessment of C.R. But I don't understand the downvotes on your "post" here. All you did was throw something out there, something on a lot of peoples' minds.)
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
