Culture and Diplomacy

In many European countries those who want to pursue a career in the Diplomatic Corps actually train for it.....studies in cultural affairs,languages,and geography and related issues..... in this country,Diplomatic posts are all too often awarded as political "favors"..... I can only pray that Obama doesn't regard the office of Secretary of State as such.....Hillary is a very accomplished woman who would be better suited to the job of Secretary of Health etc.,which is a field that she has had years of experience in....NOT in foreign affairs / diplomacy.,...someone who has a broader knowledge of the world and who, let's hope, can speak other languages,not just English.
