Our fourth story OutFront – the backlash builds against Susan Rice
The U.N. ambassador and potential nominee for Secretary of State attempted to make nice with Republicans again today, but her face-to-face with Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) appears to have backfired.
Collins is one of the few moderate Republicans left, and if there was one Republican Susan Rice was going to be able to win over, it would have been her. But this afternoon, Collins came out hard against the Ambassador and her comments about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.
Still, the President supports her. So can Ambassador Rice get the necessary votes if she is nominated to take over for Hillary Clinton? OutFront tonight are Reihan Salam, CNN contributor and writer for the "National Review," and Democratic Strategist Tim Punke.
