Chevron tanker named after Bush's foreign policy advisor

Chevron has an oil tanker named after George W. Bush's foreign policy
advisor.  The "Condoleeza Rice" was built in 1993, sails under a Bahamian
flag, and weighs 129,915 tons (deadweight).[1]

Professor Condoleeza Rice has been a director of Chevron since 1991.[2]
Her hardline stance on Iraq is well-documented.  In a just-published
Reuter's story, she stated: ``I would expect a somewhat tougher policy
toward Iraq (than Clinton's), where ... Governor Bush would be committed to
a decisive use of force if the opportunity ever came again.'' [3]

Chevron is one of the world's largest oil companies, with 1999 net income up
55 percent from 1998, to $2.070 billion.[4]

Regarding an earlier post on the confluence of oil and American politics,
<>, perhaps David Ignatius
should be taken more seriously ;-) ??
