Turtleneck tonight.

Tonight Peter Bergen, print and tv journalist and author of Holy War, Inc., caught my fancy. I think it had something to do with that black turtleneck he was wearing. I'm sure his accent didn't hurt.

If I was Condoleeza Rice I would agree to answer the questions that Bergen suggested in the NY Times as long as it was an intimate tête-à-tête, preferably over a candlelight dinner. But then again, if I was really Condoleeza Rice and really into Bergen maybe my condition would be that he perform a piano/iceskating duet with me or engage in a heated off-the-record foreign policy discussion.

What would you ask Condoleeza Rice?

The cool thing about Peter Bergen having his own site is that there's a photo gallery (!). So you can conveniently make repeated trips to the same location to figure out which Bergen you like best...

Spitcurl Bergen?

Lightly tousled Bergen?
Cowlick-on-the-side Bergen?
Long-haired Bergen?
Barely-ruffled Bergen?
Clean-cut Bergen?
Pageboy Pete?

The choice is yours.

Update: Rice's opening statement.
