Is the flap over Susan Rice more about partisan politics or race?

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice is under fire for delivering unclassified talking points on several Sunday talk shows that did not give all of the information U.S. Intelligence knew about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. The attack killed four Americans including top diplomat, Chris Stevens. House Republicans informed the White House today that they will oppose Ambassador Rice's nomination as Secretary of State if President Obama chooses her to succeed Hillary Clinton. However, there was no such flap behind the nomination of Condoleeza Rice for Secretary of State as she was National Security Advisor on 9/11. Several members of the Congressional Black Caucus have come out in support of Susan Rice. So, is this more about politics or race?

        I agree, both. Some are even arguing she got there through affirmative action which is completely untrue if they even bother to look at her bio. The other Rice didn't get that because she was a Republican...

    Reading is fundamental, but facts get in the way of a good argument. I'm sure there are many who think she's Obama's good buddy from Chicago.
