Talks About Hillary Clinton’s Successor

By  | 

Congressional opposition is softening a bit, and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice could find her name in contention as early as this week to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

As President Obama nears a decision on Clinton's successor, Rice has emerged as the clear front-runner on a short list of candidates.

Administration officials and congressional aides say Rice will be making the rounds on Capitol Hill tomorrow for private meetings with key lawmakers whose support she would need to be confirmed.
