NOW with Alex Wagner | November 28, 2012
>>> i would just ask that the president step back away from all the buzz around this particular situation and take a deep breath and decide who is the best secretary of state for our country at this time when we have so many issues to deal with.
>> that was senate tennessee senator bob corker moments ago following his meeting wit ambassador susan rice on capitol hill . governor rendell he wants the president to take a deep breath and step back. i could say maybe senate republicans could do much the same on all of this.
>> no question. don't you think senator corker struck the right tone and said let's get away from this, who struck john and susan rice this and all of the controversy and look at the facts. first of all, she hasn't been nominated. when she's nominated if she is nominated, let's see what her qualifications are. that's legitimate.
>> you know what's amazing, we said this during the break we have not heard the name hillary clinton once as we talk about this.
>> i think they're afraid to take hillary on.
>> slap on the table for 2016 , governor rendell. thanks to our panel. mckay coppens who ran to be here, i'm sorry we did not have more face time with you.
