that's a shame. she had ZERO to do with the benghazi attack. she gave talking points dictated to her by the CIA. this is her only crime. would john mccain and lindsay graham have gone against the CIA were they in her position?

"While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first."

Is Obama the biggest troll in America, or what?

And don't forget what happened after the GOP torpedoed Elisabeth Warren for the Consumer Protection department. She ended up on the Senate banking committee. Something tells me the GOP didn't think their cunning plan all the way through.

I'd say that depends entirely on whether FOX News can stir up another fake scandal targeting that blah man in the White House. If not, we're stuck with Benghazi for the time being.

Obama should do something like appoint her WH Chief of Staff. Make the Republicans go through her if they want to talk to the President.

I didn't really care for her and I think the Benghazi scandal was bullpucky. I hope Obama doesn't pick Kerry.

True. Kerry's got a lot of seniority in the Senate. Obama can't be absolutely sure who the Governor would replace him with, either. That's a good point.

Well, it was a mistake for Obongo to nominate in the first place a woman who, based on what I read on my favorite conservative websites, walked into the Libyan Embassy and massacred the staff while sporting a Pam Grier-style afro. You get what you deserve in life, that's what Jesus said

Mass governor is a Dem. Like Propasaur said, he's likely to up and appoint himself.

farking disgusting. Here's some tweets:

Jamelle Bouie @jbouie
RT @7im: White male South Carolina senator torpedoes unquestionably qualified African American woman's bid to become Secretary of State.

@davidfrum: It's confirmed: lying to David Gregory a bigger offense than lying to Congress.

Matt Yglesias @mattyglesias
Obama rarely misses an opportunity to show adversaries that irrational hostility will be catered too rather than punished.

I thought Mass. doesn't do appointments, just special elections, which is why Brown got in in the first place.

Which is why he DIDN'T nominate her. She was just another piece of trollbait to Fartbongo. He used her up like a cheap bait shiner and tossed her overboard when she got bitten in half. DAMN YOU OBONGHIT!

You may be correct. I try not to think about Massachusetts, they're crazy up there.

Any bets on who the next target for GOP outrage will be? It seems they target the most likely person just to warm up for the actual confirmation hearings.

I wonder if Obama selected someone and the confirmation hearings were the next day, how would the GOP know what to be pissed off about? It's not like they know how to use the google.

I'm not sure MA is ready for Brown. He still has looser stink all over him. Besides, I think Kerry really likes being Senior Senator from MA it's kind of the perfect job for him, and he could hold that seat till he dies if he wants. Also if the Rethugs are so hot for it why cater to them?

Exactly. Although the change the law when it fits them, right now it's special elections. Brown got the seat when Kennedy kicked off and the Democrats nominated Martha Coakley, who was a total dud.

I'm just a Californian, but I've heard that Scott Brown and family are not putting off the wrong pheromones suitable to Massachusetts' noses.

We all knew that someone had to take the fall for the incompetency of the Administration.

The claim that it arose out of a protest at the Embassy was pure bullshiat, and they should have known better.
