Response to fadedrose (Reply #23)

38. The committee that would have the hearing is the Senate Foreign Relations Committee

Its chair is Kerry and he would obviously not chair this.

As to the Republicans choosing, they can't and won't. As David Ignatius said within the foreign policy community when he has asked their choice, Kerry is the obvious favorite. Rice is closer to Obama, but she has some negatives - with nothing to do with Benghazi. That said, there are many other peple Obama can and may consider. He may conclude that Kerry is more valuable in the Senate - not just holding a seat - but as a very good Senator on issues from foreign policy to his infrastructure bank proposal that Obama has backed.
