    --Rice never actually put her name in.  The GOP started criticizing her before she ever announced she was a candidate.

    --As Secretary of State, she would have had little impact on Keystone XL. The fate of Keystone XL is decided by Congress and the President, not the Secretary of State. Also, the number of investments she had would not have changed the political realities that Keystone XL is a bad idea.

    --Being in the Secretary of State position will not make John Kerry's views on Keystone XL have any more impact and in fact he will have less impact by no longer being a Senator.

    The term "Christian Conservative" is an even greater oxymoron than "Colosseum Lion Trainer for Christ".
