But ambassadorships to many of the more desirable locales (usually First World countries with strong ties to the United States, such as France, Italy and Austria) often are offered to the privileged few who contributed generous amounts of money to the president and his party during the campaign.
They're almost all to Republicans!

It's sad now... The map today (8/27/04) has a lot more red than blue. I searched my nearest city only to find that there are a lot of retired people (I knew there were a lot but didnt even think to see this many) and Nearly all of them contributed to Bush. Most of the Kerry contributors were women And nearly all the contributors to Kerry were small, such as $25, $100. Rarely did a $1000 contribution shows up for my area. However, a lot of big $$$ contributions to Bush. For instance, One Contributed nearly $10,000 to Bush!!
Oh well... Maybe I should move.
