"Others inside Trumps orbit, particularly Vice President-elect Mike Pence, are viewed as Romney supporters, believing that he has a steady hand that would benefit Trump in the turbulent world of diplomacy, according to people familiar with the dispute who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
Romneys supporters have largely counseled Trump privately, while his opponents Conway, former House speaker Newt Gingrich and a handful of other Trump loyalists have gone public in recent days to stoke a revolt."

I think he’s just screwing around with Romney for those past remarks...
Washington Post at it again...how do they know that Romney is being considered for anything but ‘pooper scooper’??? Last I heard and seen, there are no media in the ‘room’ where things are taking place, unless Kelly Anne has her mouth going again...
When Trump comes out and says: “So and So will be my Sect. of State’ then I don’t believe anything...
Isn’t Petraeus the one that divulged classified information to his girlfriend or am I thinking of someone else?
Oh, it’s a battle now. I love their choice of words in connection with the president-elect.
you are correct!
Mr. Trump was THE ONLY choice; so, too General Mattis IS THE ONLY CHOICE Now! !!!!!!!!!!!
Semper General Mattis/President TRUMP !!!!!!!!!!
aka: Gunny G
RUDY! RUDY! RUDY! RUDY!
We need a pitbull in this position, not a pussycat.
Petraeus should NOT be in the mix for SoS either.
I hope Trump doesn’t pick Petraeus. After all the criticism of Hillary and her disregard for national security, it would be outrageous for him to pick someone who shared top secret information with his mistress.
I don’t know why anyone with an IQ over 40 would consider nominating a convicted criminal for any senior administration role.
I think Trump is just messing with Romney.
That being said, we have to be able to do better than Romney or Petreaus.
...Isnt Petraeus the one that divulged classified information to his girlfriend or am I thinking of someone else...
I think he learned his lesson; whereas, Her Heinous hasn’t. This man wrote “the book” on counter insurgency with Marine General Mattis. I’d take him in a minute.
Serious question: Why is the SoS position never filled by a person who has been a long-term employee of the State Dept’s Diplomatic Corps?
I’m hoping Romney and Petraeus are smokescreens and that Trump is about to nominate a SoS that will astound and surprise us all.
More fake news.
That would be John Bolton then who I think is great.
But has anyone in Freeperland seen any other reports of Romney backers within the Trump ranks?
Then he isn’t really different than Hillary when it comes to safeguarding classified information.
I predict Romney as SOS. This will send conservatives into paroxysms of rage and shut up critics on the left. Trade one enemy for another. Trump is his own man playing his own game.
