    I like him and I thought he got totally shafted in 04 by a guy who hid out in the Texas National Guard to avoid Vietnam (I have no problem with National Guardsmen but lets get real- MANY twentysomething men of that era who didn't have well-connected daddies would have given their left nut to be in the Guard instead of a rice paddy or on the run in Canada). I just wish that a career diplomat with an understanding of economics and cultures have been chosen. Instead of having a small group of aristocrats running things maybe we can try people who were, you know, trained for this stuff?
