    Robert,

    What, exactly, disqualifies Caroline Kennedy from doing the job of US Ambassador to the United Nations?

    While this won't come as a shock, I didn't see anyone on the list that struck me as a really bad choice.

    Just Wondering Regards,

    Joe S.

    Well Joe, to be an advisor to a man whose governing experience consists of community activism and preening in front of the camera, you'd think he'd pick people who might actually have experience. That list makes it look like anyone with enough money can buy a Cabinet position. Wondering which position Oprah bought regards....

    Julie, I'm surprised at your comments.

    The Cabinet includes the Vice President and the heads of 15 executive departments-the Secretaries of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs, and the Attorney General.

    Under President George W. Bush, Cabinet-level rank also has been accorded to the Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency; Director, Office of Management and Budget; the Director, National Drug Control Policy; and the U.S. Trade Representative.

    Who said anything about anyone buying a Cabinet position?

    Which person on Bob's list is not qualified for a position and is therefore trying to buy a Cabinet position?

    Again, based on the list that Bob supplied, what disqualifies Caroline Kennedy from being Ambassador to the United Nations which IS NOT a Cabinet position?

    Help Me Better Understand Regards,

    Joe S.

    Of all the speculations, that is the scariest.

    My gawd.

    This is why it is still possible appointments. Last I heard he had just appointed one person. This is just a list that anyone could throw out there. More scare tactics like usual from the right.
    Never take things for granted.

    Hummm...one would have thought you would have been pleased with this announcement. He is an outdoorsman that seems qualified and has worked on environmental law issues.

    Master Falconer

    Avid white-water rafter

    Restored the Hudson River by taking polluters to court

    Clinical Professor of Environmental Law and co-director of the Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic

    Senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council

    Other than he is a democrat and a Kennedy, what, exactly, is it that you don't like about him?

    Kind Regards,

    Joe S.

    She has a law degree, which qualifies one to do nothing save practice law. No indication of any education or experience in diplomacy. If you want to give someone a diplomatic appointment that has no experience, then you appoint them to a nice non controversial job with an allied nation(In her case Ireland or The Vatican would be befitting) but not to a job like the UN. That agency is already basically anti-US, we need a professional diplomat there who knows how to stick up for American interests.

    I suppose Joe for Oil who has been a total syncophant for Hugo Chavez and shills for his cheap oil will be in line for Ambassador to Venezula

    Buy a clue -- these names are not being leaked by Republicans.

    And you characterize them as "scare tactics." Priceless.
