She's one of my favorite people. She's got the greatest personality and attitude, and she's so much fun to be around. She's so knowledgeable about world affairs. It's just incredible. It's a great experience. On the greens, she's a phenomenal putter. As soon as I saw she was a member, I called her to work up a game, just like I did Arnold Palmer back in the days as an amateur. She's just one of my favorite people to be around. She kept asking me about the course. And I kept asking her about countries. It was really fun. And she really can putt." Condoleezza was just as nice about Phil; " He’s such a good friend, I've known him for years."  View image on TwitPic website Condoleezza Rice in her Green Jacket / Getty Images
