Donald Trump, as expected, has picked  ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his pick for secretary of state. Tillerson has a good relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in part through Exxon's joint business ventures with Russia.

Also: It seems likely now that Trump will name former Texas Gov. Rick Perry as Energy secretary. Perry, as a presidential candidate, famously drew a blank when asked which three cabinet departments he proposed to abolish. (Hint: One was Energy.)

Thanks to Ben Walsh on Twitter, a reminder of Perry's past outlook on Trump:
