Susan Rice to Obama: Don't Pick Me as Secretary of State

Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, on Thursday asked President Barack Obama not to pick her as his next secretary of state, after becoming a lightning rod for Republicans over the raid on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

Rice’s role as a top defender of the administration over the attack which killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya on September 11, drew her into a furious row with Republicans, AFP reported.
