Susan Rice and Africa

From Hamish In Auckland Wed Dec 5 2012, 19:04:00

Howard French has written an excellent biography on the career of Susan Rice to date. I am not a fan of seeing Rice elevated to the role of Secretary of State. Nor would it appear is French from this or for that matter Alex Engwete in his post on racist bastards is not a fan " there was the unlikely racist bastard called Susan Rice " .

I will avoid comment in the post as it is quite long enough without my two cents.
