Ben Tulchin Appears On FoxNews.com Live
Pollster Ben Tulchin appeared on FoxNews.com live this morning to discuss President Obama's potential cabinet appointments for Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense. He defended the President's prerogative to choose UN Ambassador Susan Rice for Secretary of State if he thinks she is the right person for the job. Elections have consequences, and as Tulchin points out, Obama both won the popular vote and an electoral college landslide. That gives him a a lot more leverage in his nominations than two GOP Senators wield -- especially when Ambassador Rice appears to have acted appropriately.
