I've frankly been reflecting on if not Mr. Tillerson, who else might President-elect Trump choose. I haven't made up my mind yet. I have been reflecting on a number of answers he gave that were positive, but really different from what President-elect Trump has said, both in the campaign and in recent days. I've frankly been reflecting on if not Mr. Tillerson, who else might President-elect Trump chose.feedback

There is a real tension between his expressed views in our conversation yesterday and the views of President-elect Trump, so I look forward to exploring that tension further in the upcoming confirmation hearings.feedback

It strikes me as trying to get too many things done at the same time.feedback

If they genuinely wanted to work with us on fixing the Affordable Care Act, we would have that conversation before they repealed.feedback
