U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice is meeting with key lawmakers Tuesday in what could be her final pitch for their support if she is nominated to be the next secretary of state.

Officials said the discussions will focus on her much-maligned explanations of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. But Rice is also clearly auditioning for America's top diplomatic job.

Despite lingering questions over her comments five days after the Benghazi attack, Rice has emerged as the front-runner on a short list of candidates to succeed Hillary Rodham Clinton. But even as Republican opposition to Rice appears to be softening, she still has work to do to ensure enough GOP senators are willing to back her potential nomination.
