Here is a little bit about Susan Rice's background:
http://www.biography.com/people/susan-e-rice-391616

..."Rice attended National Cathedral School, a prep academy in Washington, D.C. She excelled in academics, becoming her class valedictorian, and showed her aptitude in the politic realm as president of the student council....
...After graduation, Rice attended Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. ... She not only earned Departmental Honors and University Distinction, but also became a Harry S. Truman scholar, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and earned a Rhodes scholarship....After she received her bachelor's degree in history in 1986, she went on to attend University of Oxford in Oxfordshire, England. Here she earned her M.Phil and D.Phil in international relations, and wrote a dissertation that examined Rhodesia's transition from white rule. Her paper won the Royal Commonwealth Society's Walter Frewen Lord Prize for outstanding research in the field of Commonwealth History, as well as the Chatham House-British International Studies Association Prize for the most distinguished doctoral dissertation in the United Kingdom in the field of International Relations.'...(more at link)


(Meanwhile, John McCain, who apparently sees himself as Ms. Rice's intellectual superior, graduated 894th in his class of 899 at the Naval Academy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McCain ).
