According to this report Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) and John Bolton are both under consideration for Secretary of State under Donald Trump. I think this is first of many of such choices we’re going to see. Corker is a knowledge, sensible, temperate person, albeit someone who I disagree with on most issues. Bolton is a wild far-right ideologue, basically the Michele Bachmann of the foreign policy world. That might understate who he is. We’re going to see many instances like this where Trump is choosing between reasonably qualified people and extremists. It will be a bumpy ride.
