An extract from Susan RiceÂ´s public letter withdrawing herself from consideration as Secretary of State – my emphasis:
It is far more important that we devote precious legislative hours and energy to enacting your core goals, including comprehensive immigration reform, balanced deficit reduction, job creation, and maintaining a robust national defense and effective U.S. global leadership. Therefore, I respectfully request that you no longer consider my candidacy at this time.
Three domestic priorities and two foreign. Climate breakdown and the energy transition donÂ´t rate a mention in either context. (Â¨At this timeÂ¨ is nice.)
The right call, for the wrong reason.
