Some conservatives may look at this as some sort of "victory" what with Ambassador Rice's inept handling of the Benghazi situation, but with a total loser like John Kerry now on deck to become SOS is it really a win?
United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice has sent an official request to President Barack Obama that her name be withdrawn from consideration to replace Sec. Hillary Clinton to be the next Secretary of State.RELATED: Brian Williams Asks Susan Rice If She Is ‘Blameless’ In Controversy Over Libya Attacks
NBC News reports that the ambassador will speak with anchor Brian Williams to elaborate on her reasoning. The interview will be broadcast on Thursday night.
Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) is the likely candidate to be sent to the Senate for possible confirmation to replace Sec. Clinton.
UPDATE: President Obama has accepted Rice’s request that her name be removed from consideration to replace Sec. Clinton. “I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks,” Obama said in a statement.
