    (CNSNews.com) – In a move aimed at defusing a potential showdown between President Obama and Senate Republicans, ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said Thursday she was withdrawing her name from consideration as Secretary of State.

    In news first reported by NBC News, Rice in a letter to Obama requested that he no longer consider her as a possible candidate to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who plans to leave the post soon.

    Rice wrote that had she been nominated, “I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly – to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities. That trade-off is simply not worth it to our country.”
