What would you think about Obama appointing a Republican such as Colin Powell or John Huntsman as Secretary of State?
Most of the chatter about possible Secretary of State nominees to replace Hillary has been around John Kerry and Susan Rice but let's weigh the possibility of Obama taking the surprise route of appointiong a Republican.
Even though Colin Powell served in the Bush administration in the same post, Powell became a strong supporter of President Obama in the 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections. He is also a popular figure and has recieved praise from those on the left for his moderate stance on a wide array of issues.
Also a moderate Republican, John Huntsman has many years of foreign diplomacy experience under his belt including serving as the ambassador to China in the Obama administration.
I'm asking both Democrats and Republicans on this site, what would your feelings be if Obama appointed either of these two qualified candidates as Secretary of State?
