Kristol: Susan Rice Preferable to John Kerry?

by Eliana Johnson

Bill Kristol argued this morning on Fox News Sunday that Susan Rice may be preferable as a secretary of state if John Kerry is the alternative. Here’s Kristol’s case for Rice over Kerry: 

I think Susan Rice has been a little more interventionist than John Kerry. John Kerry is a guy who loved the Assad regime in Syria. John Kerry has been against our intervening in every war that we’ve intervened in – the First Gulf War, in Iraq he was for it before he was against it – I actually think Susan Rice might go along with Juan [Williams] and say, ‘You know what, that light footprint thing, it’s not working out so well.’
