With Refreshing Verve, She Makes Foreign Policy—and History
The former UN ambassador's performance is all the more remarkable given the upheaval in her personal life. Shortly after she was nominated last December, she learned that her Czech grandparents were Jews, killed by the Nazis. Raised as a Roman Catholic in Czechoslovakia, England and the U.S., the daughter of a diplomat never knew her family's background. "She handled it extremely well," says her friend Geraldine Ferraro, Democratic vice presidential candidate in 1984. "She meets every event that comes across her life with dignity." Away from the office, Albright likes to relax on the beach and talk about her two grandchildren. (She has three grown daughters.) Divorced from publishing heir Joseph Albright in 1983, she hasn't railed out a new romance. "It's hard for someone to fit into this life," she recently told Barbara Walters on ABC. "but occasionally someone does." Madam Secretary was. for once, too diplomatic to say who that might be.
