Obama should nominate Rice and take on McCain

Rice has already fired back at McCain.
But I think Obama should just bring it on. Nominate Rice for SOS and take on McCain and his hypocritical bullshit.
The man who sat in a tent with Gaddafi and was Iraq War cheerleader #1 has been wrong about foreign policy for 40 years.
Show the country this tired old man trying to stop an brilliant accomplished black woman for what he is.

2. The Obama administration should float McCain's name for SOS.

Then let the Dems and the media trash him over his support and cheer-leading for WMDs and the Iraq war. Use Rachel Maddow's video of his misstatements and falsehoods.

After a week or two, float Lindsey Graham's name and repeat the process.

That should shut those two up for a while.

9. No

Meyers was completely unqualified. Rice is a great choice.

10. Yes,

Meyers was a shiny object to make everyone think that Bush wanted a woman and not the white male Alito that he always had his eyes on. Obama doesn't want either McCain nor Graham, like Bush didn't want Meyers. All smoke and mirrors: Meyers to demonstrate Bush's "willingness" to appoint a woman (whom he knew would never be confirmed), and McCain and Graham to demonstrate their bullshit (whom Obama knows would never be confirmed). Bait and switch.

11. I'm afraid that Pres. Obama...

... and his advisors will see Rice's nomination as costing political capital.

I see it as an opportunity to gain political capital.

Rake "You Kids Get Off My Lawn" and "Still in the Closet" over the coals for their stupid statements.

Turn those two into laughingstocks...

12. I agree 100%. Once the public sees what Rice has accomplished, they will finally see the old

man for the lost fool that he is.

14. I would love to see Rice

correct McCain at the hearing when he makes one of his bonehead errors.
