The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is endorsing Susan Rice as the next ambassador to the United Nations. The committee approved on Wednesday her nomination by voice vote. The action paves the way for her confirmation by the full Senate. A Senate vote had not been immediately scheduled. Rice is considered a shoo-in for the position.
