Susan Rice withdraws as Secretary of State candidate

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - President Obama has lost a battle over a possible new Secretary of State.

UN Ambassador Susan Rice has withdrawn her name from consideration because of potential problems with the confirmation process. Senator John McCain and several of his Republican colleagues have opposed Rice's nomination. They say she misled the American public about the September 11th attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
