    Interesting choice

    It's good for her career too, it'll give her some creds for a '20/'24 run

    I have a theory on what's going on, but I want to wait until we know who the SOS is

    If we get Romney (and I don't think we will), one could say adults are in charge of foreign policy.

    I think it's a wise choice, tho I would have rather seen her as the VP pick.

    Just as we suspected, Trump keeps appointing all of these white men to high office...

    You are aware that
    Gov. Nikki Haley is a woman, and a Asian Sikh?

    U.N. ambassador is a powerless and essentially ceremonial position.

    Amazing. Do you know that people get banned for using the word obtuse, which is silly, since it infers a lack of humor and an inability to recognize satire?

    Trump's first appointments have been women and african americans.

    My God! Another white male in the Trump Administration - oh wait, Elaine Chao, female and Asian to boot!

    How can this be happening?

    Mitt Romney has extensive foreign policy experience: he spent two years in the south of France hiding from the Vietnam draft.

    Pivot to India...

    LOL well they say he and Boris Johnson are secret twins anyway, no? Johnson is Theresa May's Foreign Secretary... Trump the perfect match. Now we just need the RNC to switch Pence into the top slot and pick someone for VP before they explain to the electors that Trump votes fall to Pence and Pence is picking Trump for SoS. Brilliant.

    Oh, but does Trump know how to set up a mail server?

    Politico notes that shifting Haley out of the governor's mansion allows Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster, an early Trump supporter, to take the state's top spot. So, it might be just favor trading.

    Or, it might be a way to buildup Haley as a future, post-Trump Republican nominee for president—though that would require a long-game that the Trumpers don't seem to have or care about.

    Or, Haley is part of a pandering approach to the U.N. and India.

    Or, a better, smarter theory that I haven't thought of yet. (I've got the 2 of clubs on my forehead, don't I?)

    What foreign policy experience did Hillary Clinton have before being named Sec State? Doing Bill Clinton's dishes?
