Susan Rice's High School History Teacher Endorses Her for Secretary of State

Susan Rice, the current U.N. ambassador and a possible nominee for secretary of state, has been under fire recently for her involvement in the Benghazi scandal. Prominent senators have promised to block Rice's nomination over the matter, if President Obama puts her up for secretary of state.
And just the other day, to make matters worse, the Washington Post ran an opinion piece by Dana Milbank blasting Rice for her incompetence for other reasons as well. But today, Rice's honor is being defended--by her high school history teacher.
"I was privileged to teach Ms. Rice in two high school history courses at the National Cathedral School in Washington," writes John Wood in the letter section of today's Post. "She excelled in both courses. As a ninth-grader, Ms. Rice was already a writer of superb essays. I taught her again in a difficult AP course when she was a junior. Her performance was again excellent."
