You know, I can’t think of anyone who’d be even less effective as Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy than an unqualified Bush crony like Karen Hughes. Except for the guy who wrote what just might be the most famously wrong book in recent years, of course. But obviously no one would appoint James K. Glassman to be anything in government after he predicted the Dow would reach 36,000, right? Oh, wait. This is Bush administration.
