Trump election: Mitt Romney considered for secretary of state

This news comes as a bit of a surprise to many people including myself. The two men have exchanged choice words about each other. Trump stated how Romney was a "failed candidate" and a "choke artist" while Romney called out Trump on his temperament being unfit to be President. These words were exchanged prior to Trump's recent win in the United States Presidential Election. The two men met at Trump's golf course in New Jersey and were speculated to be discussing a potential position for Romney as part of Trump's administration. Vice President elect Mike Pence confirmed the notion by stating, "It was a warm and a substantive exchange and I know he is under active consideration to be secretary of state". If Trump decides to appoint Romney to Secretary of State; it will be interesting to see the dynamic between the two, specifically how they will work together.
