Early Life

Condoleezza Rice, 57, was born in Birmingham, Alabama, on Nov. 14, 1954. She is the only child of Angelena Rice, a teacher, and John Wesley Rice, a guidance counselor and ordained minister who himself identified as a Republican. She has never been married and has no children, two topics that have caused intense scrutiny over the course of her political career.
