Looks like she missed her chance for greatness.

I'd like to see her and Tulsi wrestle.

I second.

I can't believe Nikki dressed like such a hussy at the WH. Was she trying to give Mike Pence the vapors?

At least it shows that there WAS a 'resistance' inside the Trump White House. How much of it is left, who knows...

I thought she was excellent as UN ambassador. She called out the BS in a way that was both honest and refreshing. That she somehow managed to get out of the Trump team without the associated Trump-taint is a testament to her political skills.

So far she hasn't spent a lot of time in the West Wing . . . SO FAR!

Which only means she hasn't been exposed (yet) to the full blast of Trump's treachery.

Poor girl. The truth is going to be painful.

She is a clever politician without an ounce of sincerity in her entire body. Ambition flows through her veins and she is smart enough to know how to manage it. I would never support her for President but doesn't mean others won't but she is not a public servant, she's just an ambitious person who will always put her own ambition before anything else.

I've asked you this on multiple occasions and you've never answered:

Can you name a single Republican at the federal level whom you don't hate with a passion beyond all belief?

I had posted an article with a similar sentiment last year...

It's Not The Deep State That Hurts Trump " It's The Shallow State (August 2018)
www.npr.org

...President Trump and his supporters have often complained about the "deep state" " a supposedly shadowy cabal of opposition bureaucrats buried deep within the government. But perhaps the biggest impediment to the president isn't the deep state at all. It's the "shallow state" " which exists right below Donald Trump at the Cabinet level. ...

Of late, however, she seems to really be kissing up to Pres Trump.

I saw her being interviewed last week, and she was in full-Trump mode.

I was quite surprised because, prior to that, my opinion of her had been similar to yours.

And a different view...

Trump's Road to Impeachment Paved by All the President's Yes Men

...Pompeo rolled his eyes' but didn't stop Trump, Giuliani push ...

The Ukraine episode, depicted in testimony from current and former U.S. officials, illustrates the peril that lies in Trump's preference for advisers who let him follow his instincts in making policy. And it puts a new light on recent comments from former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who said last month that he warned the president not to replace him with a yes man or he'd risk being impeached. Trump disputed Kelly's statement....

There's that aspect, for sure.

But I think she is also looking to the mid-term future, and is trying to garner support for a presidential run.

Pence registered in New Hampshire to get on the 2020 GOP presidential ballot according to New Hampshire's Secretary of State.

Maybe the GOP is looking at a Pence/Haley ticket.

#14 if true then there's still schemes and undercutting apparently.

I've always wondered if the GOP would bail last minute, throw Trump and all his associated baggage to the wolves and try to walk away blameless for the last four years.

Because we know Trump would be dumb enough to take credit for it all if manipulated the right way while people like Pence would be the ultimate benefactors.

Well, isn't that curious.

Haley presents an interesting challenge for the GOP: a dark-skinned female with a foreign name, and (nominally) a conservative political outlook. Her experience in the Trump administration will have to be explained one way or another, and if Trump is impeached and then loses in 2020, that experience will be seen as an albatross around her neck. If things get much worse for Der Dotard in the coming year, Haley's actions in opposing the actions of two guys who could be cast as patriots (i.e., Tillerson and Kelly), will seal her political career. No national office will be within the reach of a person who could be seen as acting contrary to the national interest, to protect the personal interest of an insane criminal and grifter...

Does she really think "i could have saved the country but i chose not to" is a good look, for anything other than kissing Trump's ass?

This is nothing more than an audition to replace Pence, whether he is fired or promoted.

"This is nothing more than an audition to replace Pence, whether he is fired or promoted."

That's always a possibility.

But Trump is such damaged good and even though the current Senate probably won't convict, there's no guarantee that another impeachment attempt won't be made (hopefully with a more favorable Senate makeup) in his second term ~~ should there be one.

The other possibility is to look through the smoke a mirrors Trump is throwing up right now and be ready for one of his unexpected plots to make Pelosi and Schiff look like fools for wasting their time on his impeachment. Could be he just won't run for a second term and let Pence carry on the dirty work for Russia.

Pence has been very careful to protect his Mr. Clean image for the past three years. The fact that Pence has also plunked down his thousand dollars in New Hampshire to get on the GOP ballot for 2020 is cause to suspect that there's a Plan B afoot.

While it's true that Pence registered in New Hampshire for a Trump/Pence GOP ticket for 2020, there's still a likelihood that Trump will bow out (for whatever reason) and leave the door open for Pence to take the top of the ticket with Haley has his second banana.

Granted, I'm not sure if that scenario is even possible. One of our legal beagles on this site might offer some insights.

I don't think Pence would have a woman as a Vice President. Remember, he can't be alone in a room with another woman without his wife present. I feel that would not be possible (or extremely inconvenient) if his running mate is a woman.
