Good news. Hopefully, President Trump doesn't replace her with someone worse.

From AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is resigning, she and President Donald Trump announced Tuesday, stirring speculation in the White House and beyond about the timing and reasons for the latest Trump shake-up just weeks before the November midterm elections.

The news blindsided many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters, and some key U.S. allies did not get advance word from Haley or the White House. Haley, who is not personally wealthy, hinted in her resignation letter to Trump that she is headed to the private sector.
I have given everything Ive got these last eight years, she said, referring to her six years as South Carolina governor as well as her time at the U.N. And I do think its good to rotate in other people who can put that same energy and power into it.

There has been speculation that Haley, the former governor of South Carolina and one of the highest-profile women in the administration, will return to government or politics at some point.

No, Im not running in 2020 for president, she joked, quickly adding that she would be supporting Trump.
Not running in 2020 and campaigning for Trump strikes me as a rather large concession, at least if she actually holds to it.

The first thought which came to my mind was that she was busted as the anonymous New York Times op-ed writer.

I and many others assumed former Trump aide Michael Caputo implied she wrote it during an interview on CNN in September:

Shortly after the news was announced on Tuesday, Caputo responded to a tweet which said matter-of-factly he said she was the writer of the op-ed.

"This is simply not true," Caputo said. "I never thought for a moment that Amb Haley was the author. The writer is a coward, a narcissist and a seditionist. That's not Haley."

That sounds like Haley to a T, but I guess I'll take Caputo at his word.
