I would prefer Rudy, however i am not sure he wants to do that much traveling, so then my pick would be Bolton. For sure not Romney. He is two faced.

There should have been a second question: poll asks who WILL be…; should also have asked who SHOULD be…. Different responses, unfortunately.
Trump is going to pick Romney. If he wasn’t, he’d have made the choice a week ago. He knows Romney is unpopular (to say the least) with the base, but he thinks Romney would be the BEST man for the job.
As for SHOULD be, my pick would be John Bolton, but then I’ve been a Boltonite for years. He’s a totally knowledgeable and experienced diplomat, BUT he’s definitely on OUR side — and he drives the Foggy Bottom (State Dept.) denizens totally NUTS because he IS on our side and not THEIRS. I’ve still got my fingers crossed Trump will go with a breath of fresh diplomatic air like Bolton, but I’d put money on Romney.

Rudy is strongest fighter with credibility and world wide travel and executive level experience and record of accomplishment. A real American hero after 9/11.

Anybody but Romney!!!!!! Giuliani or Petraeus are both great for America. But in contrast to Hillary or Kerry, a chimpanzee would be better. And I like Mad Dog.

Giuliani or Petraeus would be great! Never Romney he said some horrible things about Trump for over a year!

Donald,,,Giullani WILL ALWAYS HAVE YOUR BACK!!!!!!!!
I hope he doesn’t pick Romney, a two time looser. He berated Trump, called him names and said all matter of evil about him. He should be nothing in Trump’s cabinet. If he is picked, he will undermine Trump and embarrass him. He should have kept quite during the campaign. I don’t think he would make a good secretary of state.

Giuliani loyal from the start don’t let Romney fool you
November 30, 2016,4:38 pm
Mayor Rudy Giuliani is your supporters choice. He is the only one very faithful to you from the beginning of your campaign to the end, we don’t want anybody except Mayor Giuliani. Don’t change your mind.

I want Petraeus but i think it will be giuliani

I think Gingrich is the smartest guy out there, he know Trump was going to win before he did, he’s got so much experience and a true blue Constitutionalist.
November 29, 2016,6:28 pm
Never Rudy. He is my last choice
November 29, 2016,6:21 pm
Romney all the way
November 29, 2016,6:20 pm
I supported Trump but if he gives Romney any job I will lose faith , he attacked mr Trump for no reason he wasn’t a contender he should never had done that
November 29, 2016,5:52 pm
Guliani………PLEASE!!! Romney (SWAMP material).
November 29, 2016,5:23 pm
Governor Romney is my first choice. His predictions about foreign affairs have proven accurate, and he dealt with foreign leaders all over the globe while bringing the Olympics from bankruptcy into solvency. As Governor he was as conservative as any Massachusetts governor can be, facing a legislature that was 85% liberal Democrat.; And he’s 100% clean.
As a retired Air Force officer I have the highest respect for General Petraeus, and I hope Trump places him in a position of honor and responsibility. I also hope Mayor Guliani and Ambassador Bolton are placed in key positions. Senator Corker can make his best contributions in the Senate. But I believe Romney is best qualified to be Secretary of State.
Trump has some difficult decisions to make, but we are all blessed that he has such a pool of qualified persons to choose from.

Gen. Petraeus definitely FIRST CHOICE. Experience and love of country.
November 29, 2016,2:13 pm
I rather have Rudy Guilanne, anyone except Romney. If he is picked he will mess up just like he did his campaign for president in 2012.
November 29, 2016,1:42 pm
Rudy is the perfect choice.
November 29, 2016,9:48 am
Petraeus, if he can keep his mouth shut and his pants zipped.
November 29, 2016,2:25 am
Don’t give Romney access to ITAR which can really mess with the 2nd Amendment.
Mitt Romney would be good as he has a great deal of deal making experience.
Do not choose John Bolton he is a war monger he supported is the Archtect and planner of the Iraq war and still today thinks it was a good idea to invade Iraq
He has awful judgement and no true strategy. He would create a bigger mess.
Bob Corker would be my next choice along with Patreus
Although Confederate monuments are becoming ever more controversial, the issue has been debated since the immediate aftermath of the Civil War. Gen. Robert E. Lee himself wrote in 1866, after being asked about a possible monument to Gen. Stonewall Jackson, that “As regards the erection of such a monument as is contemplated, my conviction is […]
