US Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice is now facing attack from leftist environmentalist groups calling for her to be disqualified from consideration for Sec'y of State. The reason for the Tree Hugger hissy fit? Seems Ms Rice has quite a portfolio of stocks and other investments in the Oil Industry. Particularly the Trans Canada Oil pipeline. That is HER RIGHT to do so. As Sec'y of State, Rice would be able to make decisions regarding international commerce. The now stalled in political never never land Keystone Pipeline would be once such international project. The Environmentalist groups claim Rice could enrich herself by having decision making authority in such matters.

Or will they eat their own? The fact that Rice could either divest her holdings or simply recuse herself is not the issue. The issue is the fact that Obama and his advisers MISSED this when Rice was supposedly being vetted for the nomination of Sec'y of State.
