Finally, we might get an ambassador

I see that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has just scheduled a confirmation hearing for David Jacobson, Obama’s nominee for ambassador to Canada, for Wednesday morning. Given that the Senate adjourns for the summer at the end of the week, this is the last chance to get the ambassador in place before the trilateral North American leaders’ summit in Guadalajara later this month.

Let’s just hope Jacobson hasn’t made any past speeches about “wise Latinas.”
