    It needs to be a non-politician that isn't afraid to stand up to the White House in the best interest of the country. Well qualified for that kind of job. Opposite temperament from Trump.

    Maybe Donald Trump can tease us with the suggesting that he is "looking closely" at Mitt Romney. Since he was passed over for Secretary of State for an oil man who has had numerous dealings with Vladimir Putin and Russia, he might be the ideal smoke screen.

    My money is on Rudy Giuliani. He was a major supporter like Mike Flynn who could remind us how ISIS was coming to kill and Hillary belonged in jail. Now this is important since Trump is barely in office and is already looking straight in the face of criminal prosecution according to Lindsey Graham. Giuliani could have another meltdown and make us all thankful that it is Trump who is in the White House and not him.

    A possibility swimming around in the mind of Paul Ryan these day that if Trump is impeached (and he quits), Mike Pence will drop out because of his association with Trump and the lies that he told as the steadfast soldier, leaving Ryan to assume the presidency. This would be a Republican dream come true. It is probably that most establishment Republicans didn't think Trump would last even a year and they were depending on Pence, but Pence is tainted which makes Ryan smile bigly.

    There is a long list of contenders many of whom are well qualified! The FBI director needs to be non-partisan which caused Comey undoing! He is a partisan Hillary stooge! Protected her as long as he could but that caught up with him in the end!

    He is having trouble finding people who are willing to sign the loyalty oath.

    Any candidate, with any integrity and decency, will remove themselves from consideration. The taint of Trump will be a career ender for many people that jumped on his bandwagon.
