Dzzy,

Looking at the position historically, it seems Ambassadors are political "favor" positions. Many Presidents have named friends and large campaign contributors to various Ambassador positions where it appeared the person being named never had any previous government or similar background. It is my understanding that a persons ability to negotiate whether from a background of commerce in the financial world or any other private commerce is the primary qualification, to include the persons support for said President.

President Bush named Republican fundraiser Sam Fox as U.S. ambassador to Belgium on Wednesday.

Fox, a 77-year-old St. Louis businessman, gave $50,000 to the Swift Boat group.

Don't know this guy.... His qualifications to be Ambassador are???
