U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice will not be the next Secretary of State after asking President Barack Obama to withdraw her name for consideration from the post.And, frankly, I’m kind of relieved.
Illinois’ 20 electoral votes are likely a lock for Democratic President Barack Obama. He and his Republican opponent, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, have hardly campaigned in the state except for a few stops to raise money or, in the president’s case, cast an early ballot.
