  • Nikki Haley resigns

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45802828

    Nikki Haley is leaving at the end of the year. Is she jumping or was she pushed? Will she be back?

    She'll be leaving at the end of the year. In the meantime there is much that she can do as a 'lame duck' ambassador. I feel that when she leaves the UN we will still be aware of her presence in one way or another. She's an intelligent person. We need such people in the public view, if only to counter those who would make us look stupid and petty.

      Or is she leaving because the UN has become largely irrelevant and is now part of the problem, and no longer part of the solution?

        Two years is a respectable tour in a thankless job. Hopefully Trump will place her in a more responsible position. Meanwhile her replacement looks solid.

          In politics. "looks" are irrelevant. Performance is the only practical standard.

            I heard she is quitting because she is broke, a $1M in debt and her parents' home is being foreclosed on. She needs the big money from the private sector.

              Are you kidding? Appearance is performance. Our entire political process is based purely upon perception, not substance.

                also getting out of the Trump admin after being able to dodge most of the mud allows her to keep her political future alive

                  That is what you see through your anti-Trump goggles. I saw her as one of the most loyal to Trump's geo-politcal agenda. There is no political future after being Ambassador of any kind, especially to the UN. Ambassadorial positions are bones thrown at the recipients. She is now on a path to making big money as a "consultant" to companies that hires lobbyists. Plus the obligatory book deal.

                    UN always was the problem

                      My apologies. You're absolutely correct. In a more perfect world performance should be the practical standard, but as you point out, it isn't.
