Paper: Hillary Prefers Kerry Over Rice As Replacement…


kerry1The big question: Who would Secretary of State Hillary Clinton like to get her job?

It ain’t embattled U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who is dealing with the way she handled the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that led to the killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Sneed is told if Hillary had to choose between Rice and U.S. Sen. John Kerry, who is head of the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee, she would prefer Kerry.

“Hillary is not close to Rice, who is tough – but is not the friendliest person,” said a top White House source. “And Hillary’s brief comment recently that Rice had done ‘a great job’ was considered underwhelming and tepid,” the source added.

“It would be hard for President Obama to back away from Rice, but he’s dealing with what’s known as “the Club of the Senate,” which includes powerful U.S. Sen. John McCain – a Republican – who is adamantly against Rice and a big supporter of Kerry’s.

    I’m assuming your statement was not made sarcastically, in which case:

    1. His quality of service is debatable.

    2. How is military service any qualification for the position of Secretary of State?

  2. Military experience gives you a chasm of intelligent priviledge when it comes to a national agenda. I think that it is very much a good qualification but it is not the future of every person to be in the military. Rice should hold her own.
