Analysis: How will Rice, Power affect U.S. foreign policy?

Keep your friends close, and the friends that took a hit for your administration even closer. President Barack Obama is circling the wagons, and moving two allies up the ranks.

The embattled U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, moves to the White House as national security adviser, and former National Security Council aide Samantha Power will take Rice's place at the UN, if the U.S. Senate approves of the pick.

Former White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton, American Enterprise Institute's Danielle Pletka, and Jeffrey Goldberg from The Atlantic joined CNN "The Lead's" political roundtable to discuss what these choices mean for foreign policy. Check out their analysis in the video above.
