The latest on the Obama administration’s mega-bundler ambassadors

Who’s getting the prime ambassador posts in the Obama administration?

Mega-bundlers for Obama 2008 — these would be people who raised more than $500,000 — have done pretty well on the cushy postings, filling or likely to fill spots in fine embassies in France, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, Austria, South Africa, Belgium, Portugal, the European Union, Finland and Japan. Other big bundlers landed embassies in England and Norway. Not that they aren’t superb picks, each and every one, and likely to turn out to be excellent, knowledgeable diplomats and all that. But we suspect they might not have landed those jobs had they been, say, working phone banks during the campaign.
