Flee For The Tillerson

Another one of those "hard to imagine someone worse, and yet..." things.

For weeks, conversations with Tillerson friends outside of Washington have left the impression that he, despite his frustrations, was determined to stay on the job at least through the end of the year. That would allow time to continue efforts to reorganize the State Department and would mean he could claim to have put in a year as America's top diplomat.

But two sources who spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity over the weekend said they would not be surprised if there was a "Rexit" from Foggy Bottom sooner that that.

The press likes him because he rich so he must be great, but that's not actually how things work. We should have learned that lesson recently.
