He may wind up choosing someone else for the job, in the end. But if Trump does offer the job to Mitt Romney, then Romney will have a big decision to make. Should he risk his own reputation on the chance that he can constrain Trump and guide him to sober foreign policy decisions? Or is the possibility of Trump setting off some world crisis by an off-the-cuff decision just too high to even consider attaching your name to his administration? Romney would always have the option of just stepping down, should Trump do something completely unforgivable. He could then say “I tried — but failed — to talk Trump out of it,” and leave with at least some of his reputation intact.

Hard to even consider this! Trump appoints Romney Secretary of State. Trump does something incredibly stupid that starts another war. Romney resigns to protect his own reputation.

And I thought that Romney working for somebody who he KNOWS should not be President was bizarre enough.
