The Romney Problem

I saw this at Israpundit:  "Trump Will Not Appoint Romney. There simply is no good reason to appoint Romney to the most prestigious and important cabinet office. Rudy is more qualified, more courageous, and most important, loyal. He deserves to be appointed Secretary of State and will be appointed. The message from Ms. Conway is 'give Romney a living, but nothing important.'"

That last bit is from "The Godfather", when Vito says that about new son-in-law Carlo. As usual,  there's a lot of political wisdom in that film.

Why can't Romney just do the decent thing and withdraw from consideration as Secretary of State, or any other cabinet position?
