There is one curious fact that still remains unsettled since the now-famous Susan Rice imbroglio of last December which led to her withdrawal from consideration for the job as U.S. Secretary of State -- namely did President Obama ever really consider her seriously for the position?
In the President's second term, we need a strong and thoughtful strategist at the helm of the State Department. I hope the President ignores the pundits and chooses the partner he needs to advance his vision of U.S. global leadership.
Sure, there's strong precedent for confirming presidential cabinet appointments and valuing competence and credentials. But McCain and Graham in their infinite wisdom are pointing to a way more entertaining path.
Even when the Obama administration is being transparent and forthcoming, even as they are wanting and willing to learn from the mistakes of Benghazi, where unfortunately four people died, Senator McCain refuses to back down.
