While I'm thankful this abhorrent woman won't become Secretary of State I can only wonder the timing of this especially since Hillary Clinton is due to testify about Benghazi next week.
Isn't that interesting:
U.N. Ambassador Susan E. Rice withdrew her name Thursday as President Obamas leading candidate for secretary of state, saying the administration could not afford a lengthy, disruptive and costly confirmation fight over statements she made about the extremist attack in Libya that killed four Americans.
Rice called Obama on Thursday morning, before sending him a letter officially withdrawing from consideration. Rice said in an interview that she had concluded early this week that what she and Obama considered unfair and misleading charges against her over the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya, would impede the presidents second-term agenda.
This was my decision, Rice said. When asked if Obama had tried to dissuade her, she said that he understood that this was the right decision, and that I made it for the right reasons.
Yeah right...."your decision."
The administration knew any confirmation fight would keep Benghazi in the headlines and you can't really cover-up something that is in the headlines non-stop can you?

From what I understand she will get an appointment to a position that won’t require congressional approval. I’m thinkin’ CABW would be about right. Yup, Chief Angry Black Woman. Of course she’ll have to nudge moochbaca out of the way for that spot. But mooch is the FAWB so maybe she is a step up.
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
Good, otherwise I’m sure Juan McCain and Goober Graham would have seen to her installation personally.
All of us here at FR know the reason she had to go under the Bus! BO couldn’t have her being asked any more questions, especially in a Senate Confirmation Hearing!
First She goes from net to net hawking the video lie (one suspects at the WH's direction)
Then, (again, one suspects) in order to keep the WH insulated as originators of the lie, Rice obediently throws herself into the (metaphorical) wood chipper to keep from having to face difficult questions during confirmation.
If true, she is the very definition of a good sport.
The RINOs are exploiting the affirmative action angle. You have McCain and Graham looking like actual conservatives slamming lightweight clowns like Susan Rice. When Graham slammed Eric Holder on Gitmo Im sure people were lulled in to a false sense of security. Those two were easybeats.
