Rice played a big responsibility in trying to stop the nuclear threat from North Korea and Iran. The agreement between the United States and North Korea included North Korea agreeing to freeze and eventually dismantle its graphite moderated nuclear reactors, in exchange for international aid which would help them to build two new light-water nuclear reactors. In , North Korea agreed to give up its entire nuclear program in exchange for security guarantees and economic benefits to ensure its survival.
In , Rice was involved in another nuclear agreement with North Korea Pyongyang. Rice, other negotiators for the United States and four other nations six-party talks reached a deal with North Korea.

In Rice joined the Ban Bossy campaign as a spokesperson advocating leadership roles for girls. In this position, Rice wrote what would become known as the " Chicken Kiev speech " in which Bush advised the Verkhovna Rada , Ukraine's parliament, against independence.

During George W. Bush's presidential election campaign, Rice took a one-year leave of absence from Stanford University to serve as his foreign policy advisor. The group of advisors she led called itself The Vulcans in honor of the monumental Vulcan statue , which sits on a hill overlooking her hometown of Birmingham , Alabama.
The decisions made in those years would shape American policy for the next generation. With the Soviet Union out of the picture, the United States did not withdraw from the wider world.
Despite their differences, the next three presidents, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, worked within this overall framework; only with the inauguration of Donald Trump would the United States have a president who challenged this bipartisan perspective.
What we do know, however, is that the ambitious, wide-ranging goals of the world-order project have never been as popular with voters as they were with the foreign policy and journalistic elites.
Since , when voters rejected George H. Bush for Clinton, who was critical of Nafta and free trade with China on the stump, through , when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, the less globalist candidate has won the key presidential elections. George W. Free trade has powerful defenders in the corporate world; democracy promotion is strongly supported by nongovernmental organizations — some of which, like the National Endowment for Democracy, receive government funds that could be at risk.
