Perhaps she will run for Senate herself, eventually.

Rice has no one to blame except herself and maybe the WH for being in this position. She was a dubious candidate at best before Benghazi. State and Defense are too important to allow partisan candidates.

Goes to show she has more class in her little finger, then all the GOP members have Congress put together.

You are joking right. When this Benghazi cover up is all said and done no one with the obama adminstration will hold office again including the king. This is just beginning. You lib dems have no idea how badly you have been lied to, but you will. I was around for Watergate…I know what this smells like.

So now we will end up with John Kerry “the French speaking” Senator who pretended to throw his medals that he didn’t deserve at the White House in protest of the Viet Nam War that he barely served in.

What a shame. Now Fox News, John McCain and Lindsay Graham will have to find something else to do, as they have spent most of their time since the election whining about Rice and Benghazi.

You are still out of your mind…she got out while the getting was good. Her confirmation hearings would have been in public and it all would have landed right on her head. obama’s only chance at that point would be if Rice committed perjury in front of Congress to protect him and Hilary. This is another cover barak’s a– tactic that is going to ultimately fail.

The GOP/Republicans was more angry at Rice and our President than they were at the actual terrorists who carried out this awful attack on our embassy. Does that tell you something? The GOP hates the air our President breaths. No matter what he does, they will always be against, even if it means siding with terrorists!

She is not classy. She is hated on the UN floor for being brash and rude. She wouldn’t have been a good pick for Sectratary of State prior to Benghazi. It is doubtful that this was a decision made by her alone. I am sure many people in the white house doesn’t want the Benghazi questions to continue.

If the GOP thinks they’ve won, it could be rude awakening. Usually second choice is either a bureaucracy lifer or someone who will more likely become dependent on the lifers to do his thinking for him. Whatever HRC and Obama has been building into the walls at Foggy Bottom is more likely to be permanent.
Then there’s the resentment factor. Remember Bork? The GOP spent the next 20+ years making Democrat nominees pay for that under Clinton. Finally, yeah, the little black lady got run out by the big, bad old white guys. That’s how it sells.
Careful what you wish for.

Bobber, you are embarrassing yourself man, it appears that people like Sens McCain and Graham have stopped their complaining about this, because they realize they do not have a leg to stand on. When are the rest of the Obama haters/righties going to realize that? Some sadly never. Their hate for Obama trumps their love of country, very sad.

Maybe the president can talk ‘w’ into the job. His administration did such a great job on foreign policy matters.

That is how the REAL racists are spinning it anyway. Do you really think this would be different if she was white? Really? Watch what happens to Hilary next week. Oh, then it will be because she is a woman right? Or some other cop out. Let’s face it. The administration screwed up big! The opposition is going to capitalize on it big! It would be/is the same either way. It has nothing to do with race, gender, da, da, da. It is politics. I am just glad I am on the side that did not screw up-this time.

I am not embarrassed at all. And I hate no one. I do however love my country and feel loyalty toward my comrades in arms. There is something about bleeding together that transcends the rest. So does Sen. McCain. You do now how that feels do you? Too bad. You will never understand us. Neither will they and THAT is the problem. Rice is the first domino. Hillary is next…the 20th. Then the big prize.

Was not my boy-I was actually a dem then. Grew up and wised up. And of course the dem party has changed. The dems need a Nixon type shake up to get them honest again…here he is.

The GOP has absolutely nothing positive to offer the country or the world. All they can do is destroy. They need to be eliminated permanently so the US and the world can move forward. The Republican part is vile to the core, as are all those who support them and their evil agenda. Time to place the blame where it belongs and rid ourselves of the cause of our problems, including Fox News, Karl Rove and Rush Limbaugh — all peddlers of hate and lies. Only totally ignorant degenerates buy into their hate mongering messages.

Regardless what she said or did not say about Benghazi, its a good decision. She simply does not have the experience or creditability for this position. The world is in turmoil and we need a Secretary with the credentials of a Ms. Clinton.
