Probably. She's always been quite conservative but I'd have see her complete platform. She's got balls. I like that (not in the Michelle Obama sense). She seems like someone who would not bend due to polls.

I have been watching her and feel she is being groomed for a POTUS run. The current gig as ambassador to the UN gives her foreign relations experience. And BTW, I think she is doing well. As governor of SC she took on the "good 'ol boy system" that runs the state. Quite frankly, that system has worked pretty well, but she tried to do some things they did not like. We shall see.

Not yet.   Some people need time to prove who they really are, she's one of them, IMO.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) announced Wednesday that she is endorsing Marco Rubio for president, potentially giving the Florida senator a much needed bump in the state ahead of Saturday’s primary.

Voters at Trump rallies on Wednesday told ThinkProgress that Haley lost their support when she made the decision last summer to remove the Confederate flag from the state capitol, where it had flown for 54 years. And they said they will never forgive her.

Chris Horsley said he is upset that Haley didn’t let state residents vote on the issue. “She was a totalitarian on it,” he said. “It should have been up to the people of South Carolina.”

Nikki Haley: Confederate flag 'should have never been there'

 
Quote
(CNN)Shortly after the removal of the Confederate flag from the South Carolina statehouse grounds, Gov. Nikki Haley told CNN's Don Lemon that placing the flag in 2000 was a poor decision.

"I think the more important part is it should have never been there," she said. "These grounds are a place that everybody should feel a part of. What I realized now more than ever is people were driving by and felt hurt and pain. No one should feel pain."

Nah.  She's tough at the UN, but as Governor the SJWs had their way with her.  She was a good pro-business governor though.

What is your point in bringing this up 2 1/2 years after the event?

Isn't it obvious? :confused:

A question was asked .. I answered.

I'll admit, the SAME event came to mind, regardless of "what group" - what troubles me is the reversal after campaigning so vigorously for a position because of "public opinion"....?   What was it that got her ELECTED!?   Who voted for her?   The same people she campaigned over an issue so vigorously - she flipped on them.

IMO, sometimes people make MISTAKES by adopting a Hobby Horse and riding it into the ground, like they'd die before giving it up, when they should have just shut up about it and stuck to the real issues.

I like what she's doing at the United Nations - IMO, that's a pretty safe place to breathe fire and spit nails - they all hate us.
POTUS.... eh.... not so fast...  let a some time pass and build up a better/stable track record, IMO.
She's on the right track, now can she stay there...?

She had said that Trump was not 'dignified' enough to be President while she was stumping for Rubio.

In case some have forgotten ..

(CNN) The Republican Party tapped South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver its response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night, but her most memorable jabs landed squarely on the GOP's own Donald Trump.

That's something that didn't escape -- or please -- some conservatives.
Haley took clear aim at the GOP front-runner, discussing her family's immigrant experience while warning against rhetoric that would threaten "the dream that is America" for others.
(Amnesty supporter)<---My insert.

"During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices," Haley said from the governor's residence in Columbia.

"We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country."

Haley never mentioned Trump by name, but the implication was clear.

The billionaire, who has led the Republican race in most national polls for months, said after the Paris terror attacks he would consider creating a national database of American Muslims and later called for a temporary halt to Muslims entering the United States.

Speaking to reporters in South Carolina a day after Trump proposed the ban, Haley dismissed it as "unconstitutional" and "an embarrassment" to the GOP.

"It defies everything that this country was based on," she said. "It's just wrong."
(An apparent Un-Vetted Muslim supporter too)<--- Also my insert!

She gave a great many Southerners in South Carolina and elsewhere the back of her hand when she promoted removal of the Confederate flag from the soldier’s memorial.

She falsely connected the flag to the Charleston murders, exploiting that despicable act for political gain, and started a war on Confederate heritage that radiated out to other states and into retail companies that continues today.

One result is that the Confederate Memorial in Louisville, KY was dismantled and removed from the University of Louisville.

Flags have been removed across the South.
Other monuments that have stood for a century or longer are in the leftist PC crosshairs, thanks to Nikki Haley’s war.

She didn’t build any bonds with Southerners who honor their unique heritage and the sacrifices of their ancestors.

Like I said ... I'LL PASS!

You found it!!! :thumbsup:
I spent 20 minutes trying to find a link to that but for some reason, it just seemed to be buried. :glare:
I've always seen Haley as a RINO in sheep's clothing, playing the nice little moderate while lying to the base.

I don't know if she is a full blown moderate pretending to be a Conservative, or A conservative playing the moderate to appease the gop'E leadership.
Either way, I see her as third string in any election where actual Conservatives are running.
She has a long way to go to prove her mettle.

Maybe Cruz Veep? But I'm hoping trump dumps Pence for a Cruz ticket come 2020.

You have her pegged. She is playing to GOPe and they are fully compliant. That being said, she is a refreshing change at the UN for the USA.
