Rice withdraws name from Secretary of State consideration

Posted: Updated:

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice will not be the next Secretary of State.

Rice withdrew her name for consideration in a letter to President Obama today, stating "the position of Secretary of State should never be politicized."

Rice has faced criticism in the administration's response to the September 11 attack in Benghazi, which claimed the life of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. Elizabeth Corridan details her decision in a special report.
