I actually agree that Kerry should get the slot, although it has nothing to do with Rice being unfit. Kerry would be a superb SOS and, as you stated, would be an easy confirmation. I've been reading indications, though, that the Benghazi controversy and the rights shameless attacks on Rice may lead Obama to dig his heals in on going with her.
