1. No I don't believe we should ALL support her but

she deserved a fair hearing and not made up attack by the Republicans. We are not upset that people might disagree with this choice but by the lies that were told for purely political reasons and not on her qualifications or lack of them.

2. Moot Point Isn't It?

I trust PBO to make sound appointments so I would support her if her nomination had moved forward. Secretary Clinton spoke highly of her as a potential nominee also so I had no problems with her. My problem is with her being forced out by republicans who obviously have a preference to see Kerry in the role either because they genuinely support him or because they see the potential to win the MA seat if he gets the SoS position.

3. I'm proud of the fact that as a member of the Democratic party, no one

dictates what I can and cannot think.

I have read here, this evening statements from people who have said that they wouldn't vote for because of the stock she owns. The only reason that people know what stock she owns is because of her the information that she disclosed on her federal disclosure forms which she as a member of the Executive Branch is required to disclose. She also happens to be married to a Canadian. The stock in question could belong to her husband for all they know, but since on this particular disclosure form you have to provide data that you and your spouse own.

And what if it is her own. As a Black woman, she isn't supposed to own anything? I think the reason the information was leaked was to do just what it did; raise the envy of green eye'd snakes.

5. Er. He never nominated her so...

Dems need to quit worrying. Does anyone really think Obama did not consider Rice a longshot? Repubs have been playing this game for years. I don't believe for a second that Rice was expected to make it. Does anyone not know this president yet after all this time? Come on.

6. Yes, that's exactly what we're supposed to do because

Dems always support candidates for superficial reasons.

No wait, I'm talking about Republicans. My bad.

What were you talking about?
