Representative Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, said on CNN Sunday that he would love Romney to get the position and he would be a "consummate diplomat."
"But I think it's a total head fake. I think this is Donald Trump still being the entertainer, still running a show where he wants to build suspense and he alone knows who the contestant will be the winner. It's more of a nod to the appearance of bringing people together."
Trump was "very grateful that Governor Mitt Romney came in. They had a good meeting. It was a warm and a substantive exchange and I know he is under active consideration to be Secretary of State... along with some other distinguished Americans."
But Democrats were skeptical that Romney is an actual contender.
