Others scratch their heads trying to come up with qualified names without falling back on the age-old habit of identifying a grey/white-haired lawyer, professor, banker man. The list does not go on and on and is pretty sparse at the moment. So why not try the purloined letter approach?

Geoffrey Dunn

During a week in which those icons of feminism -- senators McCain and Graham -- viciously attacked Susan Rice, Dowd somehow decided it was perspicacious to go after her, too. Dowd has always been a cheap-shot artist, but her initial attack on Rice last week was even below the bargain-bin variety.

House Republicans Can't Block A Susan Rice Nomination So They're Writing A Sternly Worded Letter

Buzzfeed's John Stanton sussed out that a shift seemed imminent at the end of last week, and while Sunday's political talk shows featured Rice's betes-noires -- Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham -- there was a sense that cooler heads were taking over. Most notably, McCain amigo Sen. Joe Lieberman made it clear to Fox News' Chris Wallace that he wasn't all that interested in pursuing the Susan Rice agita much further.
