    I found this on my VERIZON homepage as well. What on earth is a "public diplomacy ambassador?"

    President Bush recently told one of our new ambassadors: "Your job is primarily public diplomacy." At a time when rumor and myth reach mass audiences in seconds, communicating with foreign publics is vital to the success of our foreign policy and it is the job of all of us, from public diplomacy and public affairs professional to ambassador, to Cabinet Secretary, to Senator, to President, to every individual American."

    I hope that's an adequate summary

    I wonder if that is the same as a full ambassadorship. If so, she will be in for many perks, the least of which she will be entitled to a Red Passport which she just has to flash in any country and breeze through customs.

    Scotch at $2. a bottle. Tax free purchases, etc. etc. Lots of gala invitations.

    Hope she makes a speech at the UN. I'll go to it.

    WOW. Lucky gal and much deserving of it.

    Aw! What a great honor! Who would've thought that little 12 year old jumping bean would one day become a public diplomacy ambassador??? I hope Michelle has a great time at the Summer Games in China! Maybe this will be step one for taking over the ISU....

    But it's a day too late! They should have named her yesterday so the legions of Kwaniacs could have rushed to the polls and voted for the candidates she endorsed!

    Scotch at $2.00 a bottle?

    I for one will be there front and center at the 23rd street entrance at 3:15, phony press card at the ready.

    But seriously, Michelle totally rules. Good on 'er.

    (Gotta rush over to the MK Forum and get in on the celebration.)

    PS. Kittyjakes, just put www. in front of the web address and it will work.

    Well, let's just hope that this will help improve Michelle's public speaking skills...

    Since she seems to be loved wherever she goes, I'm sure that she will do great in this new role.

    She endorsed somebody? She has always impressed me as being completely apolitical. At least publicly.
