President Barack Obama singled out the American ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, for praise at a cabinet meeting today.

"Susan Rice is extraordinary," said Obama. "Couldn't be prouder of the job she's done."

The cabinet applauded, during the brief photo-op.

Rice has been under fire recently for misleading the American people about what happened in Benghazi, Libya on the night of September 11. It is rumored that Rice will be nominated to be the next secretary of state.

Obama also thanked the cabinet writ-large. "I just want to say thank you to this extraordinary cabinet for a job well done," said Obama.
