Published February 11, 2008

Posted Sept. 30, 2005 – Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says she was too young and too busy to feel much effect from the social changes of the late 1960s.  At least that's what she said in a recent interview with Fox News Channel.

 

"I was very young at the time of the counterculture. I was 12 or 13," Rice, now 50, told Fox News Channel reporter James Rosen this week. "And I was music major. All I did was play the piano and ice skate. And so I don't think I focused very much on the counterculture."

 

The interview seemed to get uncomfortable when Rosen asked Rice if she had ever done drugs.  Rice never answered and demanded that he got back to issues on foreign policy, according to The Associated Press.

Rosen went on to ask Rice if should would like to have any superpowers. 

 

"Superpowers?” asked Rice.

 

Rosen asked again."I'd like to be able to see through walls," the secretary said.
