Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) will block a Rice nomination for Secretary of State if Obama chooses to proceed: “I would place a hold on anybody who wanted to be promoted for any job who had a role in the Benghazi situation.
The battle against Rice has led to charges of sexism and racism. That’s why they’re putting a New Hampshire woman out front, to try to deflect those charges. Both McCain and “Butters” Graham are male, obviously, plus Butters is from South Carolina.
What do you think of this story line, one that I keep hearing/reading,
The Republicans are opposing Rice because they want Kerry, thereby opening up the Mass. Senate seat for good ol’ Scott Brown. Any credence to this?
Absolutely. But Rice’s talk show appearances really were laughable and inexcusable — the Administration set themselves up for this.
I can’t stand Scott Brown.
I’m actually not a big fan of either Rice or Kerry for State.
