Really? Giving the CEO of EXXON the job as SoS doesn't ring any bells or at least ignite any forms of critical thinking? Let's see, so far Trumps Dream Team consists of 2 Goldman Sachs bankers (1 who is the president), WWE CEO, and now an EXXON CEO. Way to drain the swamp!
Did you support Trump when he claimed to be the anti establishment candidate? Did you attack Clinton for being in bed with multi National Corporations/Banks & Wallstreet?
If you said yes to any of the above but still blindly support Trump you might be a sheep.
This is excellent news. Russia holds the key to dealing with China. A very strong US/Russia relationship will outflank the Chinese.
its weird isnt it? there is a sizable contingent of people who appear to PREFER an adversarial relationship with Russia than a friendly one. So strange. I would rather everyone on earth get along and work together......what kind of people dont want that?

Makes a lot of sense. As head of a major oil company, Tillerson has been all over the world, and negotiated deals all over the world. He's probably better qualified than most people who have already been SoS.

Speaking of critical thinking, I'd like to advise you that 'drain the swamp' didn't mean appoint Joe the Plumber to the cabinet.

ExxonMobil Isn't Going To "Fake It" - Rex Tillerson Takes On The 40-Year Smear Of The Oil Industry
ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson did not mince words at the company's annual general meeting on Wednesday in Dallas. He said ExxonMobil isn't going to "fake it" with regard to calls for renewable energy investment and symbolic climate change accords. With this CEO, there is no guile. This is refreshing.
