I wonder if she'll press for women's rights in Islamic countries? I hope so.

From what I just read, she would suit Obama perfectly. She is not a strong supporter of Israel. and can be re-directed any way Obama sees fit. Just perfect for the UN.

This woman is another "Warren" - after reading her book several years ago, I wondered what she was up to - so pleased that Obama gave her a position that would give her voice empowerment!

If she cares so much about human rights and genocide, then why is she and Obama and his administration not speaking out in condemnation over the ongoing daily ethnic cleansing and genocide against Buddhists, Hindus, Christians and others in every Muslim occupied land from Northern Nigeria to Egypt to Iraq to 'moderate' Indonesia where 300 churches and countless Buddhist temples have been forcibly closed or destroyed??? There is no Muslim dominated country that has freedom of religion, speech, conscience or press. Is it that only Muslims matter? It certainly seems so.

We vote against her and all these hypocrites in this administration. What giant disappointments they have all been. And now, Obama and his coven are again, with your tax dollars, supporting Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brotherhood in trying to install another Islamist Sharia state in Iraq, and Christians, Druze and Alawites, who have all been treated well under the Assads, are all being ethnically cleansed and driven out, if not murdered, by these Orthodox Muslim thugs, but there seems to be no human rights the Muslim Bro. and Saudis will trod on that Obama et al will turn a blind eye to it.

I have my doubts as to whether she'll be confirmed by the senate. Noted and shared.

It's a Catch-22, isn't it? If she's confirmed, she can't be any good, and if she's any good, she won't be confirmed. Still waiting for Gina McCarthy and about a gazillion federal judges.
