Foreign Policy's Josh Rogin writes about how U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice may be "off the hook" for her Benghazi comments on the Sunday morning talk show circuit a few weeks ago. That does not, however suggest smooth sailing for her chances of making it through the Senate should President Obama nominate her for Secretary of State. Its pretty safe to say that the Republicans will line up against her. Mr. Obama could attempt to cash in some political capital he earned from his re-election, but I'm not sure if this is what he wants to spend it on. There are other issues important to him that probably outrank foreign policy. It will be interesting to follow this as it develops.
I, for one, look forward to the possible questioning of Ms. Rice by Sen. John McCain.
Get the popcorn...
