Condoleezza Rice Says Kavanaugh 'Listens'

Tuesday, 04 September 2018 04:45 PM

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is praising Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying he "listens, especially to those with whom he disagrees."

Rice made the statement Tuesday in introducing Kavanaugh during the first day of his Senate confirmation hearings. Both Rice and Kavanaugh worked for President George W. Bush.

Rice describes Kavanaugh as "really, really smart" and "hardworking." She says he "makes those around him better."

Republican Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio and liberal lawyer Lisa Blatt also made introductory remarks before Kavanaugh gave an opening statement. Lawmakers will begin questioning Kavanaugh Wednesday.

Rice served as secretary of state from 2005 to 2009.
