I have personally known Susan for over 25 years and I can say, without hesitation, she is an individual of the highest integrity.
U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice's name has been in the news lately, so we thought it would be a good time to post her appearance from the 2012 Social Good ...
Obama won gays, latinos, 18-29s, and women by, respectively, 50/35/25/11 points -- and ran 40 points better than Romney on who favored middle class over big business. Ron Reagan and Mary Matalin debate whether a Republican Reset means 'evolving' on tax rates and "social issues."
The fate of Susan Rice is, of course, in your hands. But allow me to offer my encouragement to remain deliberate in selecting her as the next Secretary of State. Do not buckle to the absurdities of Washington gossip.
How about former President William Jefferson Clinton? That's right, the Big Dog himself. Why not nominate the "Secretary of Explaining Stuff" as the next Secretary of State?

Women excel at negotiation, diplomacy and collaboration. In today's volatile, interconnected world, what is needed is more nurturing and collaboration.
Jonah Goldberg doesn't believe there are any racists in the Republican Party. In his column last week, he began by explaining that the Republican Party is, in fact, not racist at all. Apologies if you reflexively spat out your beverage, soaking your keyboard. Send the bill to Goldberg.
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?
