I am assembling a running catalog on names being considered, and my company will evaluate each finalist in terms of what Donald Trump said he was going to do for Americans.
I do not want to get into specific names here, but rather kick off this lengthy task by saying that my initial impressions are not good, especially on the foreign policy front. I have in fact seen a small handful of names that I would almost certainly grade “F.” The whole foreign policy vetting mission looks to shockingly have a quite nasty neocon tinge to it with nary a worthy name under consideration.
Americans voted against an interventionist foreign policy and more involvement in the affairs of others. This is especially so in terms of conflicts where America’s national interest is not at stake. Here I am looking most directly at the radical Muslim Middle East which I and the majority of Americans would abandon in a heart beat.
