    Even the liberals realized she had too much baggage.
    Besides, the lefties think she can do more damage as National Security Advisor.
    Something else she's not qualified for.

    The just say "NO" Republican Congress would have just borked her anyway. She is smart to not let them use her to throw dirt at the administration.

    The more dirt the Congress throws the more ground they lose.

    Rice is another Condoleeza wanna be. Has all the degrees from the top universities but not job smart. Said she was an interventionist like Condi. More wars to get into, just what we need. Where was Hillary when the ....hit the fan? Off in Peru for some women's conference, like she couldn't send some aide for that. Can someone tell me one specific accomplishment that Hillary has done in her whole career, besides stand by her man to promote herself? I have high hopes for Kerry. At least he has some qualifications for the job besides punching airline tickets.

    Departing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Leaves Behind a Legacy of Firsts

    She was the only first lady to refuse the traditional cookie bake off and the first secretary of state to visit more than 100 countries. She served under the first black president and was the first first lady to have an office in the West Wing of the White House. Clinton was the first secretary of state to visit East Timor, and the first first lady to later win elective office.

    Her four years of work focused on advancing rights for women and religious minorities across the globe, helping to maintain the tenuous peace between Israelis and Palestinians, discouraging Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and, in her own words, "advancing a new approach to development that puts human dignity and self-sufficiency at the heart of our efforts."

    But this isn’t just a fleeting moment of popularity. Clinton is enjoying her 10th year as Gallup poll’s most admired woman. And it’s a distinction she’s earned through hard work, perseverance, focus, dedication, and her recent efforts at the Department of State.

    Upon starting at State, Clinton emphasized the use of what she deemed “smart power,” or the use of “diplomacy and development alongside defense.” Getting off on the rig...

    Upon starting at State, Clinton emphasized the use of what she deemed “smart power,” or the use of “diplomacy and development alongside defense.” Getting off on the right foot, Clinton chose to emphasize a pragmatic and more diplomatic handling in all her efforts at State.

    This approach has been instrumental in her achievements. Clinton has orchestrated some of the most tactful diplomatic successes the department has seen in a while, and she’s looking to make changes for the long-term. Through her vast network of personal relationships with leaders around the world (developed during her time as First Lady and continued as Senator of New York), Clinton has been able to subtly mastermind some moments of great diplomatic effort, from forming a coalition to stop Qaddafi’s massacres in Libya (though some progressives disapprovingly saw this as aggressive action justified by humanitarian intervention) to convincing Russia and China in the UN Security Council to help isolate Iran and North Korea (whether right or wrong, she succeeded in her pursuit).

    Her Big Mistake was trying to talk to IDIOTS like McCain, Graham, Corker,Ayotte, Collins.

    All of whom it is time to retire. None have the right to say negative things about someone's intelligence when all of them have DEMONSTRATED THE INABILITY TO GOVERN THE COUNTRY.

    . McCain - Still Fighting Losing the 2008 Election - Maybe 1 Marble Left.

    . Graham - Me Too LGHTWEIGHT


    . Collins has done Nothing for Maine Since she decided to go to the Dark Side. She should follow Snowe into Retirement.


    . Ayotte - Total Lightweight - another ME TOO, trying to act as if she is more than an Air Head.

    . Corker - Another Me Too - Lightweight - all he could come up with was her friendship with the President. What was Condi Rice's relationship to Laura and President Bush, to the fact that Laura felt she could speak for Condi on reasons for not running for President?, and Condi as a Mediocre SOS!


    Give me a Break! on all of the HYPOCRISY!

    For the most part Susan Rice is a run of the mill politician. We already have too many of them and need to fire about 500 of them in Washington alone, but voters recently determined that America has not been punished enough. We have more than enough RINOs and democrats to slit the financial carotids and doom us to an iron curtain existence for those who remember that dismal existence so many Europeans had before the fall of the Berlin wall.

    Secret U.S. mission hauls uranium from Iraq
    Last major stockpile from Saddam's nuclear efforts arrives in Canada
    updated 7/5/2008 6:57:12 PM ET 2008-07-05T22:57:12

    The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein's nuclear program — a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium — reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.
    The removal of 550 metric tons of "yellowcake" — the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment — was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam's nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.

    Non-enriched uranium is neither a weapon of mass destruction nor anything Iraq was banned from possessing.
