How many outspoken “never-Trumper’s” is Donald willing to consider for roles in his administration?
Vice President-elect Mike Pence met with former Secretary of State Condoleezza “Condi” Rice in the Washington, D.C., transition office on Wednesday to discuss bringing her on board the new administration.

According to a producer with NBC, when asked how the meeting went, Rice said, “Terrific. Thank you.” The same producer, Vaughn Hillyard, noted that when he asked Rice about the secretary of state post, she smiled at him:

Rice went to work as a professor at Stanford University, where she currently teaches, after President George W. Bush left the White House in 2009. She has been considered for vice president but expressed that she was not interested.
She is deemed a moderate on many issues, including immigration, and has maintained relatively hawkish views on foreign policy.
