(Newser) – Condoleezza Rice isn't joining critics on the right who say President Obama is soft on national security. "You give your successor a break," she said at a Cincinnati fundraiser. "I know how (difficult) it is on the inside." Terrorists, she said, "have to be right just once. We have to be right 100% of the time."

And, no, she doesn't miss the job, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer. "Eight years was enough," said Rice, now a political science professor at Stanford. She said she enjoys the ability to read the newspaper and "not have to do anything about it."
