I don’t understand why Republicans are opposing Ms. Rice to be the next Secretary of State. She was perfectly acceptable to Republicans (not to mention, just as black and just as female) four years ago when she was Bush’s Secretary of State, so why do they oppose her now? Knowledgeable, competent, honest, and strong, Ms. Rice did a pretty good job then.
Wait, what’s that? You mean she’s not the same Ms. Rice?
