National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice will offer long-awaited testimony today before the national commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Will she rebut Richard A. Clarke, President George W. Bush's former counterterrorism adviser, who sharply criticized her last month for allegedly neglecting concerns about al-Qaida? Will she argue that President Bush was truly focused on terrorism before the attacks? Whatever tack she takes, the book on Rice suggests today's will be a performance worth watching.

There was a showdown of epic proportions tonight on "30 Rock. "  Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made her long-awaited appearance on the show and did not disappoint.  After exchanging barbs with ex-boyfriend Jack Donaghy who's played by Alec Baldwin -- Jack apologized for "drinking with Karl Rove on Valentine's Day" and Rice confessed the identity of her favorite movie: "'Mars Attacks!' is awesome" -- the duo engaged in a music battle.  It was piano vs. flute and no chords were barred.

In September 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the eulogy for three of the four girls killed in the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala. What King could not know was that within earshot of the blast, just blocks away at her father's church, was another little black girl, a friend of the youngest victim, who 42 years later would be on the verge of becoming America's foremost diplomat. This year, the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, marking what would have been his 76th birthday, is tomorrow.

If you're like me, you're excited about Condi Rice's upcoming appearance on NBC's sitcom "30 Rock. "  After all, what's not to like? One of America's smartest people on the country's funniest TV show = endless possibilities.  We know that Condi had a brief affair with Jack Donaghy (played by Alec Baldwin). But why limit the former secretary of state to a love interest role? With her intelligence, talent and concert pianist skills, there have got to be more ways for Condi to help the "30 Rock" cast than merely becoming yet another notch in Donaghy's belt.  Condi could do anything from saving "TGS" to saving the country. So I started brainstorming and here's what I came up with.  Here are my top five picks for what Condi should do on "30 Rock":  5)

Secretary of State-designate Condoleezza Rice took a day off from work last week to be treated at Georgetown University Hospital for what news organizations described as minor surgery. In fact, Rice, 50, President Bush's national security adviser, underwent a surgical procedure to treat noncancerous tumors of the uterus. These tumors, called fibroids, are one of the largest health issues facing American women today, with nearly half of all women older than 35 afflicted. While the tumors are almost always noncancerous, they range in severity from hardly noticeable to very painful.

JERUSALEM -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice played host to an Israeli-Palestinian summit yesterday, but the session produced little beyond promises to uphold past agreements and to meet again soon. Rice characterized the three-way gathering with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as "useful and productive," though her summary of the two-hour, 20-minute session was largely a checklist of commitments previously made by the two sides.

WASHINGTON - With the 36-day election dispute finally over, President-elect George W. Bush and his top aides are weighing Cabinet-level appointments and aides say a national security team could be announced by the time Bush visits here early next week. "We're going to do everything we can to get everybody named as quickly as possible," Vice President-elect Dick Cheney said at a news conference yesterday, after accepting the keys to a government transition office. Cheney cautioned that there was no "artificial deadline," but said that the first appointments could be made as early as Saturday.

WASHINGTON -- Nearly all of the key players in President Bush's war council -- Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld -- have drawn on previous experience plotting wars or conflicts as they assert their strategies for confronting terrorism. National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, a former Soviet specialist in the first Bush White House, has no such battle scars or the hero status of some of her administration counterparts.

When millions tune into today's long-awaited testimony of Condoleezza Rice, one viewer will be paying extra close attention to her coiffure. Baltimore-born hairdresser Bruce Johnson is the stylist who transformed the national security adviser's hair into a fashionable flip 2 1/2 years ago. As owner of Avatar, one of the premiere beauty salons in suburban Washington, he's used to seeing clients on television - and it's not always pleasant. "Most of the time I will pick out the things that need to be done," he says.

MOSCOW -- Amid the worst chill in U.S.-Russian relations since the Soviet era, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived in Moscow yesterday for talks aimed at convincing the Kremlin that a U.S.-planned missile shield in Eastern Europe poses no threat to Russia. Wariness of Washington's bid for an anti-ballistic missile defense system based in the Czech Republic and Poland has spread throughout Europe, but opposition to the plan is fiercest in Russia, where leaders remain convinced that the shield could one day provide the infrastructure for offensive weapons.

Gifts of gems pass quickly through the hands of Condoleezza Rice Arab leaders showered Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice with jewelry worth more than a quarter of a million dollars last year, including at least $316,000 in gem-encrusted baubles from the kings of Jordan and Saudi Arabia, making her one of top recipients among U.S. officials of gifts from foreign heads of state and government and their aides in 2007. In January, Jordan's King Abdullah II gave Rice an emerald and diamond necklace, ring, bracelet and earrings estimated to be worth $147,000, according to the State Department's annual inventory of such items released yesterday just in time for Christmas.

Where's the outrage over use of torture? As a resident of Baltimore, a member of the Sisters of Mercy, and a longtime reader of the The Sun, I am writing to express my outrage regarding the recent reports that President Bush's top national security advisers (including Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice) held numerous meetings in the White House to approve the use of abusive interrogation techniques (including waterboarding and sleep deprivation) on high-value detainees ("Justice Dept.

WASHINGTON -- With a proposed Mideast peace conference in Annapolis only weeks away, the lofty goals outlined by President Bush seem to be fading beyond reach, with the meeting likely to be scaled back to a single day, according to senior U.S. officials and outside analysts. The conference, originally expected to be set for late November, might not be held until mid-December, a State Department official hinted yesterday. Bush's spokeswoman called preparations for the conference "tenuous right now."

JERUSALEM -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice wrapped up her Middle East shuttle diplomacy tour yesterday, leaving Israeli officials seemingly reassured and Palestinians searching for a silver lining. Rice, who flew to London to meet with Jordan's King Abdullah II, essentially shot down the primary Palestinian demands after days of meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders in advance of a proposed Annapolis peace conference this fall. "Condoleezza Rice made it clear that she in fact agrees with most of Jerusalem's demands," said an editorial yesterday in the Hebrew daily Maariv.

Keep your elbows off the table. Address the gal with the tiara as "Your Majesty." And after it's all over, issue a press release. "President Hrabowski Dines with Queen Elizabeth II at British Embassy," says the headline from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. About 120 people can say they had dinner with Queen Elizabeth at the British ambassador's residence last week. Just a few were actually at Her Majesty's table. Not Hillary Clinton. Not Martin O'Malley. But UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski scored big-time Britannic bragging rights.

So you pick up the current Time magazine, with its annual "Time 100" issue anointing the most influential people on the planet. Oprah? Check. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice - check, check. The mayor of New York, the governor of California, the anchor of NBC Nightly News, the head of Apple - all accounted for. But reviewing a list that manages to span everyone from the Pope to a tennis player, our alien invader would feel quite confident bypassing 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. - unless, that is, he or she decided to launch the takeover last night.
