Deval has already said that he will sign a change in the law to allow him to go back to appointing Senators. You know, to spare us another controversial and drawn out election.

By nominating Hagel. As I said Rice who was never nominated ends up NSC. Obama looks like the big compromiser, republicans attacked another person of color and he got everything he wanted in the first place. Weak? Yea, not so much in the end.

Bull crap. She deliberately went out and lied about the murder of 4 Americans to cover for her messiah - and got caught. Now, she's telling another lie to cover up the first!(Blaming Republicans for her own lies)

Today, that woman shouldn't even have a job at all. She should have kicked been out on the street a long time ago.

That’s right, Graybeard58, all the appointees are really just obama using another alias. None are free agents in the least. Certainly not like a John Foster Dulles

If Obama wants to appoint a black woman named Rice to be Secretary of State, why not Condi?

She’s highly respected around the world, speaks Russian fluently, has never contributed to a foreign-policy crisis by lying on all five Sunday talkshows on the same day, and doesn’t have a husband who owns a stake in a major controversial oil pipeline.

It’s hard to believe Condi would take the SOS job if she has to keep urging Israel to stop building houses on its own land; however, if Obama is planning to take a ‘’benign neglect’’ attitude toward Israel, as rumored, maybe Condi and Barack can work something out.

disagree. I don’t think nominating an old white guy retread from the Senate who voted for the Iraq War gets him any bipartsian cred. republicans won’t be happy, and dems won’t, either. Hagel’s record on Israel doesn’t help him. Hagel is pretty much a dem now anyways, as he endorsed Obama and also even endorsed the dem Bob Kerrey for Senate in NE.

In the end I don’t think tehse appointments will really make that much of a difference. Obama already won re-election and doesn’t really care. But foe the small amount it may matter, I don’t think naming two old white guys whove been in DC forever like Kerry and Hagel really helps him in any meaningful way.

Change indeed.

Embattled U.N. envoy Susan Rice is dropping out of the running to be the next secretary of state after months of criticism over her Benghazi comments, she told NBC News on Thursday.

Congress should ask her, point blank and under Oath:

"Did the President offer you a promotion in exchange for lying for him about Benghazi?"

"On the Sunday news programs following the Benghazi attack, did you knowingly lie when you said the attack had started "spontaneously"?

You may be right. The thing is most of the country still see Hagel as an R. Polls show republicans getting blamed for not compromising on anything. I think Obama looks magnanimous and republicans look like they went after another minority, yet he gets everything he wanted and republicans look bad. It makes it harder in the fiscal deal the more the country is behind Obama. Not about election it is about legislating and negotiating from strength. Of course I could be wrong :).
Remember it is all how it will be perceived. Isn’t that how he won....again?

I imagine going from inside the bus to underneath the bus in such a short time can be disconcerting.
I feel for this poor affirmative action woman who just said what was ordered of her.
Obama will reward her nicely though, He would not want to rock that boat.

What kind of idiot would submit a letter declining a position that hasn’t been formally offered yet? You guessed it, Zippy would. Benghazi must be very damning. Congress needs to question Canadian and British Embassy since obviously the 30 survivors have been threatened.

Funny that even Rice’s statement today is a lie. The real reason is that she can’t have the job because she lied on national TV and would never get the job anyway. Not enough dems in congress would vote to approve her. Once a liar, always a liar.

Rice went on TV to lie for Obama because Hillary wouldn't do it.

Her record in the Clinton administration is much more disqualifying...and that could get a lot of attention if she had to face confirmation hearings.

Chuck Hagel could knock on the door of 99.9% of folks in the country and they’d have no idea who he was.

Most of the country doesn’t see him as anything.

Other than another almost 70 yr old white guy DC insider.

I’m not saying Hagel will really hurt him, but I don’t see Obama getting any huge boost politically. I mean a name I had seen mentioned was this Michelle Flournoy. Now, if Obama had named the first woman SecDef that would have been an event and may have helped him. Hagel won’t really make any waves or anything.

As far as what Hagel would mean for the military I’m not an expert on him(he seems to me like he’ll pretty much be a continuation of Gates and Panetta at the Pentagon) but in the end as long as Obama is in the WH the SecDef is really irrelevant. Obama pulls all the strings.

You mean now the post will have to be filled by someone other than the child of an international banker?

Children of international bankers in the administration:

- Barack Obama. Mom and grandma were bankers.

- TC Geithner. Obama’s mom and his dad were at the Ford Foundation running international banking.

- Susan Rice. Father was Emmett J Rice. Former governor of the Federal Reserve System.

Lots of bankers and bankers kids in this administration.
