    AM, I had an epiphany, why it was that Susan Rice got so much undeserved hassle from McCain...beyond the usual chip-on-the-shoulder-black-guy-is-president-not-me anger he displays. Unanimous vote for Kerry. McCain was making it impossible for Rice in order to get Kerry. I couldn't help but feel that once again, this is an old white guys club at work.

      thin-skinned, self-entitled little piece of,,, work, and Susan Rice let him have it more than once while serving as a foreign policy advisor on Obama's 2008 campaign staff.

      For example, calling a McCain trip to Iraq "strolling around the market in a flak jacket.".  Oh, did I mention that McCain is also a sexist and racist little piece of... Arizona?

      That's why. Thank God Rice never reminded everyone that McCain is a reverse-Ace, else he probably would have had her tried for treason or something. :-)
