  •  I just wonder if President Obama... (0+ / 0-)

    ...might do an end run around the Three GOP Senatorial Stooges like Bush did when he got the wingnut John Bolton in as UN Ambassador by doing the appointment as a recess appointment.

    Apparently if Rice was appointed SoS by recess appointment, she'd either have to be confirmed by the Senate or resign by the end of the next calendar year.  In other words, if Obama makes the appointment in the recess before the 114th Congress, it'd be valid until December 31, 2014.

    That may be enough time for more "elections have consequences"...
