Susan Rice served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and national security advisor to President Barack Obama. And for much of her career she felt she had to be careful about what she said. Now that she’s no longer a public official, she’s more ready to let loose. We spoke to Ambassador Rice this past weekend at the Portland Book Festival.
