"It's really amazing that they're considering someone for Secretary of State who has millions invested in these companies," said environmental leader and 350.org founder, Bill McKibben.

You know, if she were up for Secretary of the Interior, this might be considered a conflict of interest. As Secretary of State, she would have no say in whether or not the pipeline goes through.

Anybody want to guess how many oil companies Dick Cheney and George W. Bush were heavily invested in when they were President?

Susan Rice is unfit to be selected as Secretary of State, not only because she has extensive investments in Canadian tar sands oil and the pipeline project, but also because she is pushing an agenda to destabilize the African continent by US military incursion in order to secure US access to oil reserves beneath a number of African countries. We must send a message loud and clear to our President and to our Congress that Susan Rice is not acceptable and must be rejected. Find someone else.

For more information regarding Ms.Rice's agenda for Africa, please see:

All the Politicians have oil reserves in their pockets. It was only an election ploy, when Obama put off the the building of the northern half of the XL pipe-line. Big oil & gas control this country, or should I say, "Greed!"

Stella - sorry but she would have a say in the Keystone XL pipeline because it crosses international borders. Clearly a conflict of interest. If you look at most of Congress, they are in a conflict of interest situation. We are screwed no matter who is in DC.

The Pres. I voted for 2ce has put us in the position of having to disagree with both his nominees now. If Rice is discounted, the next person is John Kerry. If Kerry leaves the Senate, the seat that Elizabeth Warren fought so hard to win against Scott Brown will again be up for grabs. Guess who will have the most momentum in taking that seat. Why were Progressives put in such a defensive position? Outrageous.

If she gets nominated and approved (unlikely) she should probably sell it. But then again, how many other politicians hold stock? Are they required to sell theirs? Don't think it makes that much difference either way as they all vote their pocketbooks. Scumbags.

I wish this petition were on another site than change.org:

http://www.change.org/petitions/president-obama-amb-susan-rice-s-tar-sands-investments-are-a-big-problem#

At least as of an hour ago she had not been nominated so I'm guessing either this will not be needed, or else there will be new petitions on respectable sites.
