Congratulations! But I do wonder about qualifications for the USA diplomatic corps when these appointments are made. Will Forrester open a Budapest office? Can we send Brooke Logan there?

What does an ambassador do? Will she move to Hungary? I guess giving parties for BO paid off.

I see a lot of art and charitable “board” type experience in the listing, but where is the political science, policy, diplomatic and Hungarian knowledge credentials? Perhaps she possesses these necessary qualities and they weren’t mentioned in this article, or is this another reward for left leaning political fundraisers?

“…political science, policy, diplomatic and Hungarian knowledge credentials?”

incredulous… to merit such grandiose

I ask you: Ms. Bell

preposterous

These ambassadorships are fluff positions. They do nothing but have/go to parties and make nice with people. The President gives these positions away to people who give/raise a lot of money for them. So in that respect, she’s qualified 🙁
