    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.

    UN always was the problem

    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.

    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.

    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.
