With Susan Rice falling on her Benghazi talking points, “Get Ready for Secretary of State John Kerry.”

And hey, why not? A president supported by an ex-Weatherman and the New Black Panthers might as well have a Winter Soldier in his cabinet for the complete Radical Chic Meets Geritol experience. If only Leonard Bernstein was still around to savor the moment.

Update: A video retrospective of her likely replacement — and likely to be approved, alas — causes Michael Walsh to have strange new respect for Rice: “Maybe Susan Rice should reconsider, for the sake of the nation.”

Or as Max Boot writes today at Commentary, “Obama can do worse in his choice of secretary of state — and probably will.”
