HUGO GURDON (WASHINGTON EXAMINER): She will be a loss to the administration, but the manner of her departure is also going to do the administration a lot of good. There are a couple of things that I noticed which I think are significant. She said -- she described herself as a "lucky girl." The president, twice, described her as having made the job more glamorous. They were emphasizing something which isn't very fashionable to emphasize at the moment, and that is her femininity. Because, she brought to the job of the United Nations ambassador not just great competence and great toughness, but a kind of good looks and elegance, which have really elevated the job, and I think that's why she got this farewell in the Oval Office. She makes the administration look good. She's very -- there's a kind of calm, and a dignity, and an elegance to her and a particular quality of being a woman, and I think that's why she got the farewell she did.
JON SCOTT (CO-HOST): I suppose it goes without saying that, after the administration has been criticized so much over the Brett Kavanaugh matter, and so many women, in particular, have been angry in this country, it is a good time to point out that one of the most prominent women in his cabinet has been quite good at her job.
