NEW: Susan Rice Backs Out of Secretary of State Consideration

Thursday, December 13, 2012

 

United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice has removed herself from consideration for the post of Secretary of State.

Rice was one of the few names on the short list to succeed current Secretary of State Hilary Clinton during President Barack Obama's second term in office, but she has been under fire in recent weeks from Senate Republicans who criticized her response to the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya.

The other big name on the list has been that of senior Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, and by bowing out of the race, Rice may have helped clear the way for the Bay State Democrat.

If Kerry receives a cabinet appointment, his vacated Senate seat would trigger another special election in Massachusetts, and many have speculated that Republican Senator Scott Brown may run again.
