11. You make the assumption that Obama preferred Rice

The fact is that Kerry immediately defended Rice when she was attacked. The fact is that the full choice is not just Rice and Kerry. I doubt you would have suggested that Rice step aside for Kerry if he were the one attacked. The fact is that all I know is that the DC pundits (esp the WP reporters) all wanted Rice. The President went out of his way to say he had not made his decision. After the attacks started, he could have showed more support by NOMINATING her, which he did not do. Perhaps Kerry thought he was a better choice.
