Secretary of State Al Gore?
By Michael Tomasky, The Daily Beast

With opposition to Susan Rice mounting daily, Michael Tomasky proposes six alternative nominees for the
top post at Foggy Bottom. Head of the list? The winner of the 2000 election.

Things maybe aren't looking so great for Susan Rice. The throw-down yesterday by Maine GOP Sen. Susan
Collins, who extended the Republican case against Rice back to the Clinton ears, is one of those
Washington smoke signals, and it's not a positive one. Let me therefore set aside for a day the question
of the merits of Rice and raise another one: Who would make for some credible, interesting,
outside-the-box choices to run Foggy Bottom? There are ample non-Rice options that would provide the
nation with a strong chief diplomat and would piss off the wingnuts in the bargain. Here are half a dozen.
