How Much is Condoleezza Rice Worth?
She seems to have a modest net worth – just $4 million, which is nothing in comparison with the richest people of USA. At the same time, she occupied the first position in Forbes list of most influential Afro-Americans several years ago. She could become a music star – Condoleezza Rice, who got her first name from an opera instruction “con dolcezza”, which means “with sweetness”, was a talented piano player and even was educated at the Aspen Music Festival and School. But Rice chose another career – she has become an educator and politician. These two activities served as the main source of Condoleezza Rice net worth and fame.
Rice’s career peak was in 2005-2009, when she served as US Secretary of State. She was rumored to date then-president George W. Bush. She even made a reservation once and addressed George Bush as “my husband” in public, but then immediately corrected herself. Probably, Condoleezza and George Bush really had warm feelings towards one another, but she was rather a mother for him that a lover. Rice supported the American leader and accepted each his decision. At the same time she was the favorite politician for lots of Americans, who criticized George Bush’s decisions, but adored Condoleezza Rice.
When Esquire arranged opinion poll among American male citizens, Condoleezza was ranked as the most desirable woman to have dinner with, having defeated the beauties Angelina Jolie and Julia Roberts.
Her job of US secretary brought Condoleezza Rice a solid salary. It is not known exactly, what salary she got, but politicians of her level usually get $185, 000 annually. In 2009 Rice left her post, but it doesn’t mean that she stays without payment. The “American Iron Lady” returned to her job of an educator – she currently works as Professor of Political Science in Stanford. She authored several books, some of them have become bestsellers, which means, that they brought the “Madam Secretary” lots of cash. The most popular of her published works is “Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family”, released in 2010.
