From the January 19 edition of CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront:
ERIN BURNETT (HOST): What role is she going to have? Is that what part of this endorsement was about?
JEFFREY LORD: Well as I understand it, she's expressing an interest in being Secretary of Energy. I think she would be a good Secretary of Energy.
BURNETT: So that could be part of the deal here, giving this endorsement at this crucial moment.
LORD: You know, I have no idea. But we are dealing with somebody who does the art of the deal. I don't know. But I mean, she genuinely believes what she believes here, she is a genuine conservative. She really is quite passionate about this, and so I don't think that she's frankly that cynical. I mean, you know if something came her way, which would be likely in the Trump administration and frankly probably in the Cruz administration for that matter, then she might consider it. But I believe she does this for principle, I mean she's in it for her beliefs.
