Republicans Boost Kerry for Secretary of State - Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) was the latest to criticize U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, even bringing up her time spent in Africa and several bombings which took place which also claimed the lives of Americans.  Collins also promoted Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) to become Secretary of State.

The latest political rumor, also mentioned last night by MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow is the furor over Susan Rice is partly motivated by pushing for Kerry to receive the nomination so Republicans could run recently defeated Scott Brown for his vacant Senate seat in Massachusetts.
