It never ceases to amaze me how blantaly political these appointments always are. There were such high hopes when Zippy took over from Steve. But looks like nothing changes when it comes to paying back political allies with a nice comfy ambassadorial post. Heavens forbid Israel ever send a real diplomat to somewhere as important as Washington or London. Wonder who they're going to drag up to replace Heifetz in London. Let's hope s/he actually speaks English. That would be a nice improvement on the last few.
