Hope and Change Ambassadorships in the New America

If you gave enough money or raised enough money for the Obama or Biden campaigns you got yourself in line for an Ambassadorship to a cool country like Belgium. People without enough money to give to Obama? Forget it. No Ambassadorship for you.

President Barack Obama on Thursday tapped four big Democratic Party donors for plum ambassadorships in Europe and Latin America while naming six career diplomats to posts in Africa, the Mideast and the Pacific.

Everything Obama has done; surround himself with lobbyists, rammed through legislation with no time for voters to see it, giving away jobs (Ambassadorships in this case)to people of money and influence smacks of old Beltway Washington. This is your change agent folks "bringing government back to voters". Uh, huh.
