Even Hillary Clinton is No Fan of Susan Rice, She Prefers Sen. John Kerry (MA-D) to be Secretary of State
It’s no surprise that Republican Senators Ayotte (NH), Graham (SC), McCain (AZ) and Collins (ME) are not fans of UN Ambassador Susan Rice becoming the next US Secretary of State. All met with Rice this past week behind closed doors and came away with more questions and troubled than they started with. However, its more interesting to learn that current Sec. of State Hillary Clinton is also no fan of Susan Rice. It appears that Hillary Clinton prefers Senator John Kerry over Rice. Who is more damaged from Benghazi-gate, Clinton or Obama-Rice? However, as stated by Weasel Zippers, it appears Hillary will be branded a racists and sexist as well.
It ain’t embattled U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who is dealing with the way she handled the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that led to the killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
Sneed is told if Hillary had to choose between Rice and U.S. Sen. John Kerry, who is head of the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee, she would prefer Kerry.
“Hillary is not close to Rice, who is tough — but is not the friendliest person,” said a top White House source. “And Hillary’s brief comment recently that Rice had done ‘a great job’ was considered underwhelming and tepid,” the source added.
Hmm, think this is not a bit of a power-play on the part of Hillary Clinton against Obama? If it were not for the aid of Bill Clinton Obama never would have won the 2012 election. However, with Hillary most likely going to run for President in 2016, this would be a nice feather in her cap, way to distance herself and show who wears the pants in the Obama Administration.
Exit question: How bad have things become where John “I voted for it before I voted against it” John Kerry is a better choice that Susan Rice.

STRADDLING THE FENCE
Susan Rice under fire from left for investments in Keystone pipeline firm
Published November 30, 2012
UN Ambassador Susan Rice, already under fire from Republicans, is now taking hits from the left over six-figure investments in the company behind a controversial oil pipeline.
Rice, rumored to be on the short list to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, owns between $300,000 and $600,000 in TransCanada Corp. stock, according to the TheHill.com, which cites Rice’s financial disclosure forms. TransCanada is the company whose 1,700-mile Keystone XL pipeline, which would bring oil from Canada down to Gulf refineries has been repeatedly delayed and now is in regulatory limbo.
Neither Rice or Kerry should be considered for the job. Obama is so limited in those that he can pick. Other than his czars, he has used people primarily from the Clinton administration.
I think it’s all a setup just so the Republicans will think they won a battle when Kerry gets nominated. It’s a lose – lose for us. Although what has Hillary done since shes been in there besides fly around the world and party with these other cultures. The one time we could of used her she totally failed and is still covering it up.
John Kerry sucks. Since it appears as if it will be Rice or Kerry—what can America really hope for these next few years.
The ONLY reason I am hoping hoping Kerry gets appointed will be because with his empty seat as Senator, there will have to be another special election in Mass and I would love to see Scott Brown run again.
Not only I am still in shock from Romney losing, but I won’t ever get used to the Faux-Chahontis who took Scott’s seat!
Eff you Barry and Elizabeth Warren.
Hope to survive until 2016…..
Well, they need to make a move – because Hillary is about to burst out of her pant suits. Momma-san needs to be Jenny Craig’n it zippity quick!
You’d be taking your life into your own hands to dance ‘the bump’ with her. You might find yourself out in the rose garden.
A little less flying and a little more walking – is all I am saying.
