Can wedding bells be far behind? I mean she has met his family all that is wanting is for the date to be set. A strong signal has been sent that the cougar has got her boy.
Rice, 51, remarked "And so, Peter, thank you very much also for letting me share some time with your family."
During a spring visit with Rice in Washington, MacKay, who turns 41 two weeks from today, had gushed that the two shared a "chemistry" and conceded he had always been a "fan."
But it was obvious he was smitten with one of the world's most powerful women as they exchanged a handshake and double-cheek kiss. The feeling appeared mutual.
Rice, who has never married, repeatedly called MacKay by his first name and seemed in no rush to finish up her morning agenda.
"This has been a lovely trip, Peter," she told him.
U.S. State Department officials played up the amount of time MacKay spent with Rice, saying few get so much attention."You don't get four hours of the secretary of state's time even if you're the Queen of England," said one American official."It's quite a strong signal."
