Posted on 11/08/2012 4:31:28 PM PST by SeekAndFind
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.

Read her bio. Elitist parents, Ivy League, this language and that foreign posting. Raised from birth to be a ‘diplomat’ and probably wouldn’t know how to put air in a tire.
Her already-proven willingness to deliver a complete and total falsehood should scuttle her ambitions.
Well, she is a lot prettier and lies just as easily. Her voice is less shrill, too.
“We have a winner”, says Obama. America has two losers and will pay for it in more lives.
Remember the Benghazi 4.
I was just reading Chapter 4 of Gibbon last night, the reign of Commodus. He’s really a good fit for O, right down to substituting basketball players and JayZ for gladiators and charioteers.
Stick your knife in America and get a prize!!!
"What can brown do for you?"
When do the investigations start? When do the hearings begin? When do they get around to impeachment????
Come to think of it, 0bama said ‘If you go out there and lie for me to save my re-election, I’ll give you a top agency slot if re-elected’.. And she said, ‘You better, or I’m telling..’
Sorry for another post, but.. Maybe 0bama is floating this now so STUPID AMERICA AT LARGE will think that the Republicans are attacking her over Benghazi to stop her from getting the SD job because she’s black. LOL This is how the left operates. AND THE REPUBLICANS WILL BE EQUALLY STUPID ENOUGH TO ACQUIESCE and back off of her. ARGHHH!!!
howzabowt dis guy?
I approve :)
I’m looking forward to more failures and coverups .
What can I do anyway. Might as well enjoy the show.
“Understand yourself and understand your enemy, and in one hundred battles, you will never be defeated.”
I guess we don’t understand our enemy. We keep assuming that experience, intellect and ability play into Democrat job selection. What counts is loyalty.....personal and Democrat party loyalty. Then, are they shady so they can be controlled? Will they split the take and split it properly? See anything about knowledge, skills and abilities? Totally secondary. The Obama administration is a collection of grifters. Shoot, get together 40 or 50 million bucks and you could probably get him to be a Republican.
“Do not understand yourself or your enemy and you will always be defeated.”
It follows that Hillary would step down now so she can prepare to ascend to the White House in 2016. This is New America... Hillary will overwhelm any token Republican opposition and win in a walk with at least 60% of the vote.
Isn’t it amazing? Only 2 days in and already he’s making things worse. Only 1458 more days to go.
The guy’s funny—these are all nannies for Obama like Valerie Jarrett. He’s such a pathetic titty baby!
If you’re going to f-up, f-up big time.
My bets are impeachment in the house with the senate failing to removing him.
Just like lovable old Bubba.
Gee, what could go wrong? Thanks SeekAndFind.
Only if you feel that you owe the public some answers.
