Around the world, diplomats and politicians were bidding a not-always fond farewell Tuesday to Boris Johnson after the blond foreign secretary's bombshell resignation.Johnson quit Monday with an attack on British Prime Minister Theresa May, whom he accused of killing the "dream" of Brexit and leading Britain into the status of European Union "colony". Many people were surprised when May gave Johnson the job of Britain's top diplomat in 2016 .Johnson has made no secret of his ambition to be prime minister, though when David Cameron's resignation after the 2016 EU membership referendum sparked a leadership contest, Johnson was abandoned by a key ally and outmaneuvered by May, who became prime minister.Now critics and allies are waiting to see whether Johnson will challenge May for the top job.
