Reader Opinion: Rice the better choice


An announcement for a prospective vice president will be made soon.

Susan Rice, former Ambassador to the UN and National Security Advisor would be a solid selection.

While Rice has not held political office, that may be more of an asset than a liability.

She ably fits all of what is needed: trust, compatibility with the President and the ability to step into the position of POTUS.

As vice president, she could strengthen a president as a solid counter to adversaries, setting limits to Putin and Xi. She has what is required to rectify the egregious acts both have made.


There are critical problems ahead with disease, debt and dilemmas with few clear bright outcomes.

Susan Rice is the right choice to take on the heavy lifting needed to protect our long-term securities and wellness from the inevitable threatening seismic shifts that are to come.
