    It is quite humorous that many are taking umbrage with this selection as this post is basically an insignificant position. Other than those that may have been outraged by her predecessor's personal life, can anybody name one other ambassador to the RD, throughout the course of history without using Google? In the big scheme of things, it is rather trivial.

    the selection of her predecessor was disturbing to posters here for more than the reason that his sexual ´preference was controversial.

    it was also disturbing to many on the basis of who selected him to be Ambassador.

    your observation about the significance of the post is spot on. as a matter of fact, can anybody name the Ambassador to China? Japan? Germany?

    trivial is not the right word. Diplomatic communications between countries can be very beneficial as far as cultural, trade and social business are concerned and a good Ambassador can make a difference .
