I have been of the opinion that Mitt Romney would not accept a position of Secretary of State due to the fact there is no way his inner being would allow for that to happen. Also there is no way he would want to travel the globe and explain Donald Trump’s outlandish ideas to the diplomats in international capitals.
There is also no way that the bombastic, and ever-more absurd personality of Rudy Giuliani could be placed in the position without the world community coming unglued. America, after all, will still have to lead a most chaotic world.
What we have witnessed over the past two weeks is a most off-putting sight as Giuliani engaged in an unusually public fight to land the job in the next administration. It has been most unseemly. Even after this election season the antics of former mayor of New York City is simply embarrassing to watch play out.
While I think Romney would be a fine choice, given what a Trump administration will resemble, there is just no way he will lower himself to such a place. Therefore deep consideration needs to be given to another name bandied about.
Senator Bob Corker from Tennessee.
The bottom line is there needs to be someone with a face on our foreign policy that has some credibility, a face who has the ability to be taken seriously in times of upheaval. I fully understand that Trump is in over his head and has no depth on the great complexities in the world. That is why the Secretary of State position must be filled by someone with gravitas.
