11. You seem to overlook that Kerry had the lead role in diplomatic talks with Assad before the uprising

while Rice took a much more aggressive role in pushing regime change in Libya and Syria.

Kerry's appointment shows two things: 1) desire to counterweight the regime change advocates; and 2) Obama thought that Kerry would have an easier time getting through Senate confirmation after the Benghazi debacle than Rice who put herself into the center of the contentious issue over mixed-messaging by the Administration about what actually happened in September.
