Susan Rice’s ‘Benghazi baggage,’ F-bombs would make her

‘lightning rod’ as Biden VP pick, writer claims

Former national security adviser Susan Rice would be a “human lightning rod” if selected to be Democrat Joe Biden’s running mate, a Washington Post columnist wrote Friday.

Rice, who is reported to be among the shrinking list of Biden vice presidential contenders, has the advantage of a longstanding close relationship with the former vice president, unlike any of the other names on the list.

But Biden’s want for “familiarity and comfort” are luxuries the nation doesn’t have time for in this singular time of crisis, Post columnist Dana Milbank writes.

Despite Rice’s impressive resume — Rhodes scholar, Oxford, U.N ambassador, national security adviser — she has serious Benghazi baggage and a polarizing ability to make fast enemies. She had to withdraw from consideration as former President Barack Obama’s secretary of state because she was unlikely to get the Senate confirmation votes, Milbank writes.

If she joined the Biden ticket, Milbank writes, she would be a distraction for the Democrats in a time when voters want calm — and would be an easy target for Republicans.
