Think about this, President-Elect Donald Trump choosing someone who was run out of the military by Barack Obama for doing much less than Hillary Clinton did, brought back to take her job?
General David Petraeus gave an interview to a BBC Radio station and said he would be more than willing to join the Trump admin if called upon.
Many of us remember how he was run out of town by Obama over things Clinton got away with.

General David Petraeus, one of the United States’ most prominent military officers, has indicated he would be willing to serve in President-elect Donald Trump’s administration if asked.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: “The only response can be: ‘yes, Mr President’.”
Gen Petraeus resigned as CIA director in 2012 following an extramarital affair with his biographer.
It later emerged he had shared classified material with her.
“If you’re asked, you’ve got to serve – put aside any reservations based on campaign rhetoric… and figure out what’s best for the country,” he said.
A report in The Guardian last week linked Gen Petraeus to the race for secretary of state, citing diplomatic sources.
Mr Trump has been putting together his administration made up of friends, family, and former rivals – but several key positions, including secretary of state, remain open.
General Petraeus was indirectly critical of some of Donald Trump’s rhetoric during the presidential election campaign, describing the president elect’s anti-Muslim comments as toxic.
However, he said he had heard good things from those who have been speaking with Mr. Trump since the election result.
