Weinstein: Susan Rice "uniquely qualified" to lead State Department
Appeared in Huffington Post, December 11, 2012
In this piece for Huffington Post, Jeremy Weinstein defends Ambassador Susan Rice's career, saying that the potential candidate for Secretary of State is "uniquely qualified" for the position due to her impressive record as a diplomat in Africa and the Middle East. Rice's career has been subjected to intense partisan and media scrutiny, which he says is unwarranted.
Weinstein hopes that President Obama will nominate Rice to be the next Secretary of State, calling her "an independent thinker, forthright in her views, who has the intellectual fortitude and diplomatic agility to strengthen U.S. leadership in a rapidly changing world."
