9. Kerry has been in the SFRC for years

and has been at the forefront of MANY of our diplomatic negotiations for decades now.

And it's not capitulating, it's saving our fight for one that's worthwhile. Say we drag this shit out and the Rice confirmation takes a long time and gets uglier and uglier as the media and RW spins Obama into some sort of permanent conspiracy corner over Benghazi (they're already trying this)... the mainstream support that Obama won in November doesn't last forever. It will erode as will our chances to use that cushion with the public on fights they DO care about, namely the disparity of wealth and raising taxes on the rich. People cared about Health Care and we went into that fight with Obama's inner circle buddies dismissing liberals at every turn. Obama started to lose public confidence that he had when he rolled in the 2008 elections and by the time HCR was finished, 2010 was a DISASTER for us. If he spends that energy on Rice, we're going to lose people who fall prey to MSM bias and not have those people's support once we go after taxes. 2014 will not go well if that happens.
