  •  The mainstream Benghazi criticism is BS (8+ / 0-)

    But its a sexy story for the media to run with.

    Rice had nothing to do with Benghazi, either before, during, or after, apart from being a glorified press secretary on the sunday shows after it happened. The Benghazi criticism of Susan Rice is based entirely on the necessity of the GOP to find a scandal to pin on Obama. And it's simply not there.

    That being said, there are legitimate criticisms of Susan Rice that people should know about. Her holdings in Transcanada, for example, when her potential office will have a final say in whether or not the XL pipeline gets approved. Her handling of Central Africa during the Clinton Administration is certainly open to criticisms.

    I dont know if Obama is actually going to nominate her for SoS or whether it is simply a trial balloon. If it's a trial balloon he's invested a lot of his personal clout in keeping it afloat.
