On Friday, the CBS News editorial board interviewed Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. During the questioning, one of the board members said to Rice:
Iran is still increasingly in the news, both with the President being here and we understand there's an article coming out in The New Yorker next week, Sy Hirsch [sic] talking about plans the Administration is making to go into Iran in a military way. Can you talk to us anything about the situation in Iran and the United States?
Rice responded with the common refrain that "the President doesn't take any option off the table, but we still believe that the diplomatic track has legs and can still resolve this if we remain very tough on that track."
