RT Headline: Susan Rice withdraws as Secretary of State candidate

US Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, has withdrawn her name from consideration to become the next Secretary of State, saying she seeks to avoid the “disruptive and costly” confirmation process in the Senate. “If nominated, I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly, to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities,” Rice said in a letter to President Barack Obama. US Ambassador to the UN – and a close Obama confidante – Rice has been in the center of Republican criticism over the Obama administration’s response to a deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi. The race for the position of the new Secretary of State comes as the incumbent, Hillary Clinton, has said she will not serve a second term. Obama said he accepts Susan Rice’s decision and expressed gratitude that she will continue to serve as the US Ambassador to the UN. “Her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first,” the president said, while stressing the he deeply regrets “the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks.”
