The university I attend has invited Dr Rice for a "conversation", which will be held in our center for the performing arts. This will basically be her speaking briefly followed by questions and discussion. I have been to this venue infrequently, and only for performances of the musical arts variety. From what I remember, men generally wore tuxes... but this is a completely different event. What would be appropriate to wear for meeting with the secretary of state... I can't say this has ever happened to me before but I'd assume it would be the same for meeting with any distinguished speaker.
