Rice Withdraws: A Sad Day for Democracy; a Great Day for GOP Bullies

I have to say I find this disappointing. I didn’t come into this with any particular feeling that Susan Rice needed to be Secretary of State. I was even a tad surprised when someone first floated the idea to me a couple months ago. But a totally cooked up smear campaign against Rice seems to have worked. My sense was that the President was personally deeply offended by the attacks on Rice. And yet it worked. I’m curious to find out what really happened.

Also curious whether she’s destined for the NSC.
