Hillary Clinton will step down from her role as Secretary of State in Obama’s second term and lawmakers are speculating that he may nominate U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice as her replacement.
However, in the wake of the intelligence failures related to the September 11th attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, some Republican senators have already said they will block her potential nomination.
The Foreign Relations Committee is responsible for voting to confirm the next Secretary of State once a nomination has been made.
Georgia Republican Senator Johnny Isakson is a member of that committee and he joins Starting Point live from the capitol this morning to discuss why Rice has become a focal point for criticism.
