David Petraeus, the army ex-general who resigned in disgrace as head of the CIA, said Sunday that he's paid for his mistakes and is ready to become Donald Trump's chief diplomat.Petraeus has interviewed with the president-elect and is on the short list to become the new president's secretary of state.Speaking on NBC's Meet the Press, Trump's running mate Mike Pence confirmed that Petraeus is a finalist for the job, along with former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, ex-UN ambassador John Bolton, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and Republican senator Bob Corker.Petraeus's scandal however could pose a problem for getting Senate approval, and would expose Trump to accusations of hypocrisy after he savaged Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail for mishandling classified emails as secretary of state.
