1. That's sad but I think she did the right thing....

President Obama doesn't need that fight. Not that I believe he wasn't willing to have it because quite clearly he was.

Susan Rice is showing a lot of class by doing this. Kudos to her.

6. Sounds like she fell on her "sword"... Very unfortunate...

And, while I think Kerry would be an excellent SOS (which seems likely at this point), I am really really really pissed that that would likely return Brown to the Senate.
