She would have been a better choice than the other "usual suspects."

I'm not sure who the "usual suspects" are. Obviously Kerry is the front runner but I think Hagel might be more qualified. He has Foreign Relations Committee experience and all other things being equal (as they seem to be) that makes me think he might be the better choice. He's certainly a better choice than Rice IMHO but I could see Obama tapping Kerry for it strictly based on party.

Both have good credentials and are good diplomats and Rice lacks the diplomatic qualities they share. I knew her briefly (through work and not well) and I'm not sure she would have been a good choice temperment-wise.
