Susan Rice Will Not be Next President of Brookings Institution

Here is more from Politico:

Susan Rice has made it clear she’s not interested in becoming the Brookings Institution‘s next president, three people familiar with the situation told POLITICO’s Alex Ward and Daniel. Buzz spread throughout the think tank after the White House announced Rice was stepping down as the domestic policy adviser, leading to rumors that she might be a natural pick for the role. But she made clear to people in Brookings’ orbit that the board, which aims to make a decision in the summer, should consider other candidates. A Brookings spokesperson declined to comment, and a spokesperson for Rice said, “This is urban legend. No one involved with the search at Brookings has contacted Ambassador Rice about this opening.”

Ms. Amy Liu remains as Interim President of Brookings while the search continues.
