Since The Cable is subscription only, Taegan is my go-to on this story:
“Insiders with ties to the Obama administration tell that U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice has become the heir apparent to National Security Advisor Tom Donilon — a post at the epicenter of foreign-policy decision making and arguably more influential than secretary of state, a job for which she withdrew her candidacy last fall amid severe political pressure.”
Said one source: “It’s definitely happening.”
Yes it is, despite all of this:
Honestly, at this point, even if I were inclined to dislike and distrust Susan Rice, I’d still be doing back flips over this, simply because of what the GOP has put her through. They are the ones I increasingly dislike and distrust, and they have done nothing to alter my perceptions and everything to heighten them.
Once again, Republicans have made utter horse’s asses of themselves over a fantasy-scandal. May it continue to backfire in their sour little faces.
Congratulations, Susan Rice. Feel free to gloat.
