We don’t know exactly how this came about yet. Maybe the White House didn’t want Rice’s SoS Senate confirmation to turn into a high profile Benghazi grilling.

From Yahoo News:

Susan Rice, the embattled U.S. Ambassador for the U. N., withdrew her name from consideration Thursday to be Secretary of State.

President Barack Obama confirmed the news in a statement Thursday afternoon, saying “While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first.”

In a related story, John Kerry was spotted in Hillary’s current office measuring for curtains.

By way of Allahpundit at Hot Air, much of the MSM will take a predictable angle on this, and it’s demonstrated here courtesy of Andrea Mitchell.

Update: Nice Deb adds:

And any anger she feels toward Republicans for her misfortune is misdirected. There is only one person she should be mad at for losing her the plum position of Sec. of State, and that’s the guy who sent her out there to lie on the Sunday talk shows like a ridiculous hack, making her ineligible for the job.
