I hear we like corruption? Let’s bring more in!
This article ( Ambassador sweepstakes underway as figures jockey for plump posts - The Washington Post) made me think about ambassadors, and how politically, they can be used either to put in career diplomats - who are, presumably, good at their jobs - or give cozy jobs to wealthy donors.
The former would help foreign relations more, and the latter would help the well-connected more. The latter would also be more expensive.
Everyone, thoughts on how this would go into the Ambassadors / Embassies policy? Would this make sense?
