Susan Rice was a patsy first, and is now a red herring. First, who had ever heard of her before she appeared on that fateful Sunday morning? She was picked by 0bama and fed the talking points with him KNOWING that the situation would eventually blow up, but in HER face, not 0bama's. Second, I find it pretty unlikely that she is 0bama's real first choice for Secretary of State. Her name has been "leaked" to distract the GOP and stoke their ire against a specific person, rather than against 0bama's naive and dangerous foriegn policies. Now, when 0bama reveals his true first choice, when the GOP is even more aghast, 0bama will paint them as hysterical obstuctionists.
