Is there any doubt, that as the dust settles and The Donald high tails it to the center, that the office of the President is much bigger than the individual, and once esconced therein the mark of a "good" President is nothing more than that of a good weather forecaster; sell what's coming down the pipeline with a smile.
I'm watching the Sec of State appointment very closely and think that it's a major harbinger.
The appointments so far have been a mixed bag, but I'd give him a B-. I definitely don't think it's been a disaster.
For Sec. of State, you have a political enemy but who is plainly competent and reasonable in Romney and some solid other possibilities like Bob Corker.
On the other hand, you have hotheads like Giuliani and Bolton.
Does Trump have the guts to defy his base and go with Romney or the sense to go with a solid but unspectacular pick like Corker? Or does he capitulate and go with a firebreathing loudmouth in his own campaign-style mold?
This appointment will determine whether I look at a Trump presidency with guarded optimism or deep-rooted fear.
