Giuliani Leading Choice for US Secretary of State

Giuliani has long had a strong focus against terrorism - he was Mayor of New York during 9/11 - and so that could be a sign that fighting terrorists will be a much higher priority for the new Trump govt than in needlessly re-fighting ColdWar conflicts against Moscow.

I still find him to be a surprising choice, but let's wait and see if this rumor pans out, or if there's someone else waiting in the wings.
