I was kind of lukewarm about Susan Rice as the next Secretary of State -- she has high qualifications, but she'd been around for a while a now -- but that's all changed. The McCarthyism-style smearing of her -- with about as much evidence as Joe McCarthy had on that laundry list in Wheeling -- by Sen. John McCain & Co. has been one of the more disgraceful episodes in modern politics. Which is saying quite a lot when you think of it. That makes her nomination and confirmation no longer an option -- but a necessity. We'll be getting a solid cabinet member -- and putting an end to swift-boating in our time.
