Secretary of State used to be like an auto mechanic. When you need an auto mechanic, you can't call somebody else. You can't call a car salesman or a race car driver even, only a mechanic will do. If Trump picks Giuliani or Bolton, it will be three blatantly unqualified Secretaries of State in a row: Clinton, Kerry, and then Giuliani/Bolton. The last qualified specialist, like her or not, would be Condoleezza Rice.
Senator Brown shares with President Barack Obama the distinction of being a recipient of very generous campaign donations from Goldman Sachs, his third-largest contributor behind two Massachusetts mainstays: Boston-based Fidelity and Boston-based Liberty Mutual.
