    She got tired of being one of the nuts in the fruit and nut basket? (Not a sexual orientation comment).

    One of the more level headed and admirable members of cabinet.

    I would have welcomed her appointment under any administration.

    Unsettling news. She seems sane mostly, in stark contrast with POTUS and some others serving in the administration. Perhaps that's why she resigned. Also, there's some question about her ethics (see link). Still, I wonder if perhaps Kasich and her might have a go at Trump in 2020.

    Wow. I thought she was one of the best aspects of the Trump administration. I too wonder why she left.

    She needed to save herself. Good people are unsustainable in an Administration based on corruption. You can only go so far to try to save your country before being morally consumed. I’ll venture to say this Administration has the highest turnover rate of ANY US Administration.

    Odd timing, hopefully, all is well with her.

    Who knows. She says she’s going to campaign for him in 2020. I’m sure a lot of gossip will come out (true or not) about the reason she’s leaving.

    She is gonna campaign for 2020 GOP candidate who will be most likely Trump.

    She is also smart enough not to burn herself in a 2020 bid of her own with 0% chance of success.

    Right if Trump runs again in 2020 Haley wouldn’t be stupid enough to challenge him. It would ruin her career.

    Sounds as though she’s just burned out.

    Trump might have a chance in 2020, anbody else running as GOP will end with a McCain moment...

    I have NO idea how people here can say she’s sane. She’s one tick down from Bolton in her role as UN embassador and has just as much contempt for international law.

    Has anyone ever actually watched her at the UN? She’s of the mindset that it’s a tool of America rather than the US being a member.

    I’d like the UN to be dismantled. It’s vasically useless at this point.

    The world managed just fine for thousands of years prior to the founding of the UN. The world would manage just fine after it’s dissolved.

    You already stated you don't care about the results of climate change. Some of us actually care about the future of humanity and this is going to require international efforts.

    Anyone sane in the Trump administration have their wings clipped, so regardless of her demeanor or rationale it’s essentially pointless.

    I care about conservation. I do not believe in man made global warming. The earth has been through so many cycles without our interference. We know for certainty that there have been several major ice ages. Do you think there are any efforts man could undertake to prevent the next ice age?

    The world managed for thousands of years without the United States of America, recent developments makes me think we'd be better off without it.

    You obviously have an opinion that Haley is terrible and the U.S. is an overreaching empire...I'm curious though. What major countries, say on the security council, do you see as benevolent, innocent countries never getting a rebuke from anyone on the international stage?

    Google "[insert country name] violates international law" if you are of the mind a lot of the major countries are angels.

    Here I thought Haley was fairly well thought of in her role as UN ambassador by most (not all) people, including Democrats (not all) and many other countries (not all).
