Rice Withdraws From Secretary of State Consideration

By December 13, 2012

Follow me on:

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice (right) withdrew her name from consideration for the Secretary of State's job today after a contentious month with Republican opponents. You can read more about Rice's decision here.

That leaves Massachusetts Senator John Kerry as the likely successor to Hillary Clinton. President Obama hasn't even made a nomination decision yet, but Kerry is expected to have a smooth Senate confirmation if Obama gives him the nod.
