Look, I'm fine with rivals being on the same team - that's politics, that's fine.

So I'm here pondering Mitt is frontrunner for prestigious SecState. Now Nikki Haley gets U.N Ambassador.

Palin - gets nothing. Kellyanne Conway nicely says that Palin isn't being considered for anything.

As far as rivals, I recall Mitt not just endorsing Trump's opponent, but Mitt went full gangster against Trump and attacked Trump more than he EVER attacked Obama even. Nikki was also pretty strident in her repudiations.

So they might get jobs, and Palin - who was with Trump even before it was cool to do so, gets nothing.

PART of me is pleased that Trump is trying to pick people based on merit - and Mitt has PLENTY! Trump's perogative to leave Palin out.

BUT - - when scandals, conflicts of interests, and other crap comes out.....Trump's new friends will NOT back him up. Democrats won't back him up. The Palins of the world would've.

I hope Donald knows that. Once the honeymoon, and the 1st 100 days of 52% approval ratings are done -- that job can be very lonely.
