    UN Ambassador Haley resigning; she gives no reason

    Seems too early to start a presidential campaign.

    It is not a good job. Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., held it for 7 1/2 years and no one else has come that close. He said about the UN, "This organization is created to prevent you from going to hell. It isn't created to take you to heaven. "

    Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., was about the last of the grand eastern Republicans of New England.

    Haley has been okay. It will be interesting to see what she does next.

    She is strongly pro life working in a notoriously pro death organization the UN that may be part of her decision.

    UN Ambassador Nominee Nikki Haley: “I’m Strongly Pro-Life”

    It's a wise move to wait until AFTER the midterms.

    Yes that makes sense.

    OK, I think she is perhaps positioning herself for a senatorial run 2020-2024 then presidential 2024.

    Then of course she could be tired of the games played inside the beltway and is returning to "private life".

    Perhaps they are wanting a man in there for some upcoming efforts? Not every country views women in the same light.

    Some ppl think she may have not liked BK’s confirmation. Timing is odd.

    She made a statement or released a statement without clearing it with the President not so long ago.

    Yes perhaps there is something we don't know but when they made the joint announcement they certainly appeared and behaved as if all was well.

    Maybe one day folks will learn that they CANNOT parse the actions of Trump a'la' a common everyday beltway politician. He will make a liar out of you every time if your try to pin-point his actions!

    Speculation is one thing, but prophesying is a total nuther animal.:rolleyes:

    No one stays in that job very long. It is an overrated job. As time goes by, the UN becomes less and less important. It is a thankless job and a lot of UN representatives from other countries really belong in a prison somewhere. There is some talk that they might nominate that homosexual ambassador to Germany for the job. They should downgrade it to the point where we just send a career diplomat there. It makes me sick that we have had to fund that place all these years and we can't even get it out of this country because no one in the world wants that thing around.

    She is a good candidate for the senate.
