On another note, Ambassador Susan Rice has officially withdrawn her name from consideration to serve as Secretary of State when Hillary Clinton steps down. Now that the "hoopla" has finally settled down (isn't is amazing how fast GOP outrage settles down when the facts are revealed?), Benghazi will officially move to the back of the news files and into oblivion. Is this move by Ambassador Rice a victory for Senator John McCain, who made it perfectly clear he would use the "Nuclear Option" if Ms. Rice was nominated by the President (See more on the Nuclear Option in "How Our Government Really Works, Despite What They Say")? Will McCain now actively support Senator John Kerry for the position? Will his support reflect actual admiration for Kerry? Or is his "support" based upon the chance Kerry's seat may be opened up in the Senate, allowing Republicans the chance to take it back with the special election of outgoing Senator Scott Brown (outgoing because he was defeated by Elizabeth Warren)? Is there a motive for what McCain has been doing on this front or is it simply out of spite and hatred of the President?
One thing is for sure, the Republicans always claim "we need to take back our country" and I always asked "but from whom?" Now I know at least one thing. Please Republicans, can I along with all other Americans have my conscience back?
