President Bush will nominate Harvard Professor Mary Ann Glendon to be Ambassador to the Vatican.
How is "Ambassador to the Vatican" not the cushiest job in the history of the universe?
I wonder if moving from Harvard to the Vatican means being surrounded by more weirdos or fewer weirdos?
Is Senate confirmation necessary to this position?
Given that Professor Glendon is a member of fairly important advisory council to His Holiness, is there not some slight basis for concern?
