The most outspoken critic of UN Ambassador Susan Rice is expected to join the Senate committee charged with vetting her credentials if she is nominated to head up the State Department.
Arizona Sen. John McCain confirmed to Foreign Policys blog The Cable that he would be joining the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in January.
Though he has his concerns about Rice, McCain maintained the respect for the nominating system he has encouraged since 2005 when he responded to Democratic attempts to block the nomination of former UN Ambassador John Bolton.

In other words, McCain will yip a little then roll over like a circus poodle.
And possibly end up being a fall guy for something, like Petraeus.
John’s our go-to DL. (Designated loser.)
If there’s any race or issue where the Democrats need a ‘conservative’ war hero, someone like Bob Dole, to harumph and look concerned, before ineffectively folding, well, he’s Johnny-on-the-spot, a one-trick pony.
While most have buried the facts, it was McCaskill and Obama who tried to make McCain eligibile to protect Obama from eligibility questions with their Senate Bill 2678 in February 2008, the Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act. When SB 2678 “FAILED TO PASS” McCaskill and Leahy went for appearance (a resolution is not actionable - does not make law) and passed Senate Resolution 511 in April 2008, which contained the key testimony, agreed with by all US Senators except McCain, My assumption and my understanding is that if you are born of American parents, you are naturally a natural-born American citizen, Chertoff replied. That is mine, too, said Leahy.
McCain is the designated shill for crony capitalists, more dangerous because he can always be rolled.
Another ‘Rat shill RINO who should have retired long ago.
McCain is as useful as tits on a bull.
After the NY Times threw Rice under the bus yesterday, I think her nomination to State is dead.
This will seal the deal. The fix is in. Watch Juan Mclaim will vote for Rice and urge his “friends” to do likewise.
Appoint him Secretary of Depends down at the Flaccid Arms Home, where he belongs.
