According to a recent report from Fox News, Susan Rice, who was vetted as a potential Vice Presidential pick is being pushed to Biden by Obama as a pick for secretary of state.
Rice served as Obama’s UN ambassador and she became national security adviser in 2013.
Per Fox News “Some Democrats worry she might have a confirmation problem in a closely divided Senate after her involvement in the Benghazi attacks, but sources closer to Biden dismissed that thought.”
The report also claims Senator Chris Coons is “jockeying for the role” and other potential picks include Tony Blinken and Willliam Burns, former deputy secretaries of state.
In May, appearing on “Firing Line with Margaret Hoover” on PBS Susan Rice said she’s “humbled and honored” to be under consideration fo Joe Biden’s Vice President.
Asked if she would say yes to being Biden’s running mate, Rice replied “I certainly would say yes”
