For John, BLUF: It would be good for foreign policy prosecution if the President quickly announced Senator Kerry as his nominee to replace Madam Secretary Clinton. Nothing to see here; just move along.
And another post. This one was in DRAFT format from yesterday and I accidently passed over it. I don't think it is fair or reasonable that US UN Ambassador Susan Rice should be pulled into the maelstrom that is the Behghazi Imbroglio, but it is happening and there seem to be no real efforts to extract her. This slops over into the question of who will replace the current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Here is the InstaPundit commenting on the current state of play:
WELL, NO. HARRIET MIERS NEVER LIED TO CONGRESS AND THE NATION: Is Susan Rice Obama’s Harriet Miers? Though I do recall a few Bush operatives trying to claim that criticizing Miers was somehow sexist, so you’ve got that parallel.One wonders if this distraction is getting in the way of our UN Ambassador and the UN actually doing useful business?
