Reports that U.S. President Barack Obama plans to name current U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice as his next secretary of state have infuriated Republicans who continue to criticize her over inaccurate public statements made in the wake of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
But Washington infighting aside, Rice's appointment would be unlikely to signal a major substantive policy shift from her predecessor Hillary Clinton -- or even her predecessor, Condoleezza Rice. As the following statements make clear, Obama's likely second-term secretary of state and George W. Bush's second-term secretary of state share more than just a last name. See if you can tell them apart:
1. "It's clear that Iraq poses a major threat. It's clear that its weapons of mass destruction need to be dealt with forcefully, and that's the path we're on."
