Obama's choice to replace Hillary? Susan Rice
American Thinker ^ | 11/08/2012 | Rick Moran

Bloomberg News is reporting that UN Ambassador Susan Rice is the favorite to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she steps down as expected sometime in January.

Six current or former White House officials, who all spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations, said Rice remains close to President Barack Obama and shares many of his views on foreign policy. They emphasized that the president hasn't made a final decision, and Clinton may remain in her post for some months into Obama's second term.

Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley and other officials said Obama's first move will be choosing a successor to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. He also may need to find successors to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, the officials said.

Rice is thought to be the president's preferred choice over two other strong candidates, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry of Massachusetts and National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, according to the current and former administration officials.

Rice, who also worked on the presidential campaigns of Kerry and former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis, is known for her strong personality and passionate defense of Obama's foreign policy at Security Council and inter-agency meetings.

Its just like the punk president to give the finger to the nation by nominating his Benghazi stooge for SOS.

Susan Rice? Please proceed, Mr. President. That would be a big-time unforced error.

well, after all Rice did all the interviews after the Sep 11 2012 event and she fully spouted the cover story that had to be cooked up by V Jarrett and Axelrod, so she’d be an excellent “tool” to move over to SoS role.

Obummer will just move around his folks like they’re little chess pieces so that it looks like change. But it will still be smoke and mirrors, all fanfare and no substance.

It’ll still be Mr Obummer in the oval office and his communist buddies running the asylum. Animal Farm lives!

The world goes from smirking at the USA to horselaughter at our expense.

With this appointment the USA will be at an all-time low in terms of our influence in and respect of the world.

wouldn’t that put her in the Senate crosshairs

The only crosshairs in the Senate are in Harry Reid's ancient nose.

I need to dust off my books on the fall of the Roman Empire.

This is just too closely tracking that spiral: perfumed eunuchs, clowns and doofusii given positions of power. The failure of arms and the besmirching of the institutions of marriage, hearth and home.

I just have not decided if zero is nero or elagabalus...But women own his azz.

Another evil, lying, scumbag, Muslim loving b****. Elections certainly do have consequences and it looks like we are really effed.
I’m just about ready to watch this mother f-ing country burn to the ground so that eventually we can rebuild from the bottom up and get rid of all of these bastards.
I am finding very little to hope for at this point and don’t see a silver lining in any of these clouds. Sorry to be so pessimistic but I krpy my chin up and thought that we would win right up until Tuesday night and now I am shell shocked just like our weakass candidate.
