When she spoke she actually said something and folks understood what she was saying.

She will be missed.

Is it too much to hope that maybe her position is becoming obsolete?

I'm guessing it has something to do with the latest SC Justice confirmation nonsense.

She picked a side in this fight a long time ago.

I don't think so, she told Trump 6 months ago that she would be leaving at the end of the year.

She has two kids and it's a tough job, I'm guessing she will take some kind of job close to home and have more of a family life.

Maybe Graham gets moved to a cabinet position and Haley is appointed his Senate spot.

Word is she's got kids in college and UN Amb doesn't pay the bills. I was just thinking she'd make a great sec of state. Maybe 2020 (assuming Trump wins, which is statistically likely: no president has lost reelection with a good economy and no major war) after she goes and makes a bunch of money for the next two years to pay for her kids schooling. Then she'd be teed up for 2024 to be our first female president.

Shes not going anywhere but up. Just giving time for her replacement to be resolved. If she had enough legal background, i would think she would be replacing Sessions. She is staying with the Admin though. Count on it..

Not a bad idea. As long as Graham keeps his nads that he just found he had.

When one finds talent and work ethic like that you do whatever it takes to hang on to them.

IF this is true and right now it seems a big IF. I totally agree with GG... That is unless she indeed sets her priorities on her kids n family, and I sure wouldn't hold that against her either, though it would be a big loss/setback for the Administration.

She was good as UN Ambassador, but she has been a little wishy washy on some issues as governor.

My guess is she is going to private company to make some real coin. Having a family member that was in "W" circle it is a hard life. Travel and being away from home and family is not easy. Takes it toll. Wish her well.

Just thinking out loud regarding Haley's potential future employment … she could start her own lobbyist firm in DC and make millions. She has everything in her favor - female, minority, highly influential, and attractive

I have been beyond proud of the job she has done the last couple years.
I was worried when Trump offered her the position mainly because acted like a liberal when she signed a bill to change the Sc flag after the church murders. That act set in motion the removal of Confederate history around the country.

She can't,

The federal anti-nepotism statute prohibits public officials — including the president — from appointing relatives to positions in agencies over which they preside.

That's the same thought I had when I saw it reported.
