Susan Rice could be in the hot seat again with conservatives after a bruising bid for the secretary of state position. The Washington Post reports she “has emerged as far and away the front-runner to succeed Thomas Donilon as President Obama’s national security adviser later this year.”

“The job would place her at the nexus of foreign-policy decision making and allow her to rival the influence of Secretary of State John F. Kerry in shaping the president’s foreign policy.”

“The appointment would mark a dramatic twist of fortune for Rice, whose prospects to become the country’s top diplomat fizzled last year after a round of television appearances in which she provided what turned out to be a flawed account of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.”
