Yeah, once you appoint Palin to a position where you are saying she is qualified to be President of the United States, you never, ever, ever get to be critical on who you think is or is not qualified for appointment to Secretary of State (or dog catcher for that matter). He either has a total failure of judgement or a total failure of character to do the right thing. Either way, it's time for him to be quiet.

Yes, she announced before the election that she wouldn't serve as Secretary of State during a second term.

Personally I'm not so sure we should have another secretary of state named Rice.

She said a while ago that she wouldn't serve in a potential Obama second term. Conservatives took it as "ZOMG!! Rats from a sinking ship!!!11!"

KrispyKritter: brigid_fitch: I used to respect McCain. I was even close to forgiving him for being a part of the Keating 5. He was a decent senator and a seemed a genuinely honest, common-sense guy.

I think prolonged exposure to Palin broke his brain.

i suspect subby is misled. i think Palin was force-fed upon McCain by those in party who backed her with big money from early on. pretty face, camera whore, but their eternal erection made them forget she could barely Alaska. yes, she did break McCain. the VC couldn't do it but Cougar for Congress proved to be the human Viagra that broke the piggy bank. damn shame, he was a good man and a true patriot. somebody shoulda kept momma off that flag pole.


Nah, McCain wanted Lieberman in the worst way.The party was pushing for a Midwesterner like Daniels with solid budget cred.
She was an 11th hour compromise.

MrEricSir: Personally I'm not so sure we should have another secretary of state named Rice.


Maybe he should just appoint another Secretary of State named Clinton. Bill for the win!

Of course, there are those pesky line of succession questions (although it does allow for the skipping of those not qualified for succession and there is the can't be "elected" again line).

Also, I doubt after being President he would want to be anything further down the line from that level answering to someone else. And he would have to give up his Clinton Global Initiative which might be doing more for the world than he could in the government.

But hey, it would make for a great story.

I read all that, I guess I wasn't clear: has she made a statement in the past week?

I figured she was leaving, I just didn't know where this flurry of news about replacements was coming from since I couldn't find an announcement.

For the record, I have taken the liberty of providing a summary of Cabinet turnover between terms, which I defined as any Cabinet seat made vacant within the six months after Election Day by an administration that did not change on Election Day.

Cabinet turnover wasn't much of a thing until Nixon did a housecleaning, and now it's just par for the course to see a bunch of people leave.

The Democrats are really, really stupid if they don't basically eliminate the filibuster so attention whore assholes like McCain can't stop up the necessary work of the Senate just because they want to have the attention of the whole nation while they have their temper tantrum. 

I can only guess that McCain is doing what he's doing now because he wants to be remembered as a crybaby asshole.

AdolfOliverPanties: He keeps this up and people will forget that McCain wasn't always on the wrong side of every story and issue. They will forget that he was against torture, was sometimes a reasonable voice in the GOP, was able to poke fun at himself on TV and appeared not to be an intractable mean old asshole.

It is like he is determined to be remembered as a doddering old fool.


I don't forget he was against torture.

Wish I could so the later hypocricy wouldn't be so damn sad.

Seriously - like these old white dudes are ever going to accept a woman of color named Rice as Secretary of State.

I lost my respect for him before he unleashed the Thrilla from Wasilla.

I was in Iraq when he claimed Baghdad was safe as an Indiana farmers' market, and that was when we were losing four guys a DAY in Iraq.

To be fair, that might actually be the death toll in an IN farmer's market per day...when guys like McCain are driving around.

Rose Garden

10:43 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger.

Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the four Americans in our thoughts and in our prayers.

The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. We're working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I've also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.

Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.

Already, many Libyans have joined us in doing so, and this attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya. Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried Ambassador Stevens's body to the hospital, where we tragically learned that he had died.

It's especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi because it is a city that he helped to save. At the height of the Libyan revolution, Chris led our diplomatic post in Benghazi. With characteristic skill, courage, and resolve, he built partnerships with Libyan revolutionaries, and helped them as they planned to build a new Libya. When the Qaddafi regime came to an end, Chris was there to serve as our ambassador to the new Libya, and he worked tirelessly to support this young democracy, and I think both Secretary Clinton and I relied deeply on his knowledge of the situation on the ground there. He was a role model to all who worked with him and to the young diplomats who aspire to walk in his footsteps.

Along with his colleagues, Chris died in a country that is still striving to emerge from the recent experience of war. Today, the loss of these four Americans is fresh, but our memories of them linger on. I have no doubt that their legacy will live on through the work that they did far from our shores and in the hearts of those who love them back home.

Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourned with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.

As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.

But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.

We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory, and let us continue their work of seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children.

Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost and may God bless the United States of America.


That's funny, no mention of a video on Youtube or riots. The only type of "attack" mentioned was "terror". Hmmmmmmmm weird.

skylabdown: The WH knew the truth about the attacks and made a conscience decision to send out a purposely mis-informed surrogate to deliver a known non-truth. (to them, not her.)

We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to - or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo. And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons, weapons that as you know in - in the wake of the revolution in Libya are - are quite common and accessible. And it then evolved from there.


This is an incorrect assessment?

He had his faults too, but you could at least tell that Tim had some enjoyment for what he was doing. His son on the other hand, he clearly wanted to be in sports, and only got his position out of sympathy to his dad's tragic death, And boy does it show in his work.

So now Walnuts and his belle of the ball Lindsey Graham (seriously, the guy makes Marcus Bachmann look downright butch in direct comparison. NTTAWWT) want Susan Rice to be the designated fallperson for their manufactured scandal?

Because there are rumors that her name is being floated as being on the short list for SecState?

And cos McCain can't forgive or forget the "shoot first, aim later" dig?

Wow, those guys suck.
