War on Women: White House Offered Kerry SoS Gig a Week Before Dumping Woman of Color

Loose lips sink swift boats, Johnny.

John Kerry says that President Obama offered him the secretary of state job a week before Susan Rice publicly pulled out of the running for the job.

“He called me, actually a week before Susan got out of the thing,” Kerry tells the Boston Globe. “He called me and said, ‘You’re my choice. I want you to do this.’ He asked me to keep it quiet. I did. I sat on it.”

Glad to see he can keep a secret.

At the time, Rice pulling out of the running for the top State Department job suggested that the position had simply fallen to Kerry, who had been in a neck-and-neck competition for the job. Now it seems that the White House allowed Susan Rice, the ambassador to the United Nations, to publicly save face by publicly withdrawing from a job that was never going to be offered to her in the first place.

Maybe Rice was too “ethnic” for them. A lot of that going around in liberal circles these days.

    Sadly, it is likely that Ambassador Rice would have been a better Secretary than Kerry is likely to be. Horrible, mind you, but horrible comes in degrees and Kerry is likely to be worse.
