(Newser) – Piers Morgan certainly had some important matters to discuss with Condoleezza Rice last night on his show: Matters like why she isn’t married, considering she is—as Morgan called her—"one of the most eligible women in Washington" (um, she lives in California now) and "quite a catch." The cringe-worthy questions continued, as he asked her how close she’s come to getting married, how many times she’s come close, if she "holds out hope" she’ll ever get married, and whether she "dreams of a fairytale wedding."

Rice gamely answered, only refusing once (“I’m not going there,” she said in response to his question about how many near-misses she’s had). But oh no, Morgan was not done. He then asked her if she’s "romantic," declared that he couldn't picture her as "a subservient wife," and wondered how he might go about wooing her. Finally, after asking if she’s "high-maintenance" and learning that (a) no, she’s not and (b) she even likes to cook, he asked her arguably the creepiest question of all: "If you were cooking me a meal, what would you cook me?"
