    and the GOP ever designated Rice the nominee - not the president, not Clinton, not Rice herself.

    She was already in a high-visibility diplomatic post when she did the talk-show marathon that gave the right their ammunition. Why did the administration choose the ambassador to the UN for that task rather than the SoS?

    I can think of a couple of possible reasons. Clinton had her hands full at the time, too full to be running around placating David Gregory? The position of SoS is too diplomatically sensitive for her to be doing it? Obama wanted to shield Clinton from criticism (not that that worked, heh)?

     Rice was just doing her job. A whole lot of other people projected that candidacy onto her.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
