Secretary of State Susan Rice?

by Peter Kirsanow

Fresh off her smash-hit performances on five different talk shows in which she adamantly blamed an obscure video for the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, CBS News reports that President Obama is likely to name U.N. ambassador Susan Rice to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state.

Not only is she credible and telegenic, but as CBS News notes, White House sources say the president feels he should be able to select any cabinet officials he wants “and they say that Rice has performed well on Iran and North Korea.”

No word on whether whether that assessment reflects the progress of Iran’s nuclear program or its attack on our drone.
