I Will Match You Madeleine and Raise You 450 Pounds

'NYT' Sunday Preview: Madeleine Albright Can Leg-Press 400 Pounds

Published: April 20, 2006 1:35 PM ET

NEW YORK In an interview in the The New York Times Magazine that will appear this coming Sunday, Madeleine Albright reveals, among other things, that even at 68, she works out three times a week "and I can leg-press up to 400 pounds." This follows a discussion of how she does not expect to re-marry, partly because, as she says, "I'm intimidating, don't you think?"

Another highlight of the Q & A is her commentary on the fact that her father, Josef Korbel, a Czech diplomat who became dean of the school of international relations at the University of Denver, happened to train two future secretaries of state. The other was Condoleezza Rice. "What I like about her," Albright says, "is that she continues to give credit to the fact that my father had a big influence on her."

When Korbel died in 1977, Rice sent a pot of flowers in the shape of a piano, and Albright's mother referred to her as "your father's favorite student."

Nowadays Albright is not a fan of certain aspects of Rice's work. She declares that the Iraq invasion "may end up being one of the worst disasters in American foreign policy."

Wild Thing's comment.........

Sorry Madeline, years ago when I was doing the bodybuilding thing leg presses were a favorite of mine. Leg day at the gym was my favorite day of the week. haha all true
The last year of bodybuilding for me I was up to 850 pound leg presses. It really isn't that huge a deal, women naturally have strong legs, not so much upper body but legs can handle a lot. It just takes being consistent week after week and eating steak the night before. It worked for me anyway.

She says ..."I'm intimidating, don't you think?"......good grief! Not unless you are a steriod freak and then you are just asking for trouble. I can see it now, Madeline Albright on steroids doing a Sunday morning political talk show and having roid rage. YIKES!

Hey Madeline........."Iraq invasioni may end up being one of the worst disasters in American foreign policy." I think NOT Madeline, now go sit in the corner.

My wife informs me that Madeliene's idol is Zena The Warrior Princess, too. A frightening enough thought, it's second to thinking of Madeliene with a pink headband, a pink leotard and a tight sports bra with...let's say "excess" spilling out here and there. And those hairy quads! All those curves and me with no brakes!

Yeah, I know. WT should delete this post.

If Madeleine keeps that up she'll end up as appealing as Helen Thomas, wha...? She already is!!!

Jack hahahahha I just had an image in my mind now of Helen Thomas and Madeline at Gold's gym working out together. YIKES

The mental picture of Madeline Albright working out in the out is too much to bear. I just got done eating lunch and now I need to take a Tumbs or something as the picture is unsettling. The though of Helen Thomas with her working out is too catastrophic...I need to get some fresh air.
