Andrea Mitchell: 'Woman of color forced out'

Says GOP will suffer over Rice's withdrawal from secretary of state

(FOX NEWS) It didn’t take long for NBC’s Andrea Mitchell to turn Susan Rice’s withdrawal from the secretary of state-stakes into a racial issue.

Asked for her analysis on MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” Mitchell swiftly claimed that Rice’s withdrawal would be bad for Republicans because she is a black woman — intimating that her skin color and gender were somehow a factor.

“I think that this had become sort of an impossible challenge for her to be confirmed, that she realized that — the White House realized it as well. I think they know that they are on good political solid ground,” Mitchell said. “This is not going to … help Republicans at all, the fact that a woman and a woman of color has been forced out of a confirmation process even before she was nominated.”
