I guess this means she can now join the Justice League of America, or the pro wrestling circuit, or maybe the Wu-Tang Clan:

President Bush gave his national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, a new job description Tuesday: the White House's "unsticker."

The White House recently set up, under Rice, a new National Security Council oversight group over Iraq.

...Bush was asked what changed with the creation of Rice's new group. He did not directly answer the question, but suggested her Iraq oversight was a natural outgrowth of her job description.

"The role of the national security adviser is to not only provide good advice to the president, which she does on a regular basis," the president said during a Rose Garden news conference, "... but her job is also to deal inter-agency and to help unstick things that may get stuck. That's the best way to put it. She's an unsticker."

With Rice, arms crossed in front of her chest, watching from the sidelines, Bush added, to laughter: "Is she listening? OK, well, she's doing a fine job."


"The Unsticker." Not quite as catchy as, say, Ghostface Killah, but, well, maybe if she spells it "Tha Unstikka"....
