Obama’s Cash-Plus Plan for Ambassador Posts?

The Obama administration has not given any signs that intends to depart from the practice of naming donors or bundlers to ambassadorships, according to this report. 

The Clinton administration tended to favor a “cash-plus” approach, in which big donor Democrats often had a modicum of knowledge of the languages or issues in the countries to which they were sent.

Until the full list comes out, it’s unclear what Obama’s overall policy will be, but some of the names circulating for plum posts include several who have contributed or bundled to the campaign or the inaugural or the Democratic Party some very serious money.
