The USA leads the world in giving ambassadorships to non-career diplomats, aka cronies. All one needs to do is bundle half a million or so for the president (any president) and boom – a sweet diplomatic post.

Of course the cronies only tend to go to the fun countries. Posts in Mozambique and Uzbekistan tend to be filled by, well you know, diplomats.

Already serving are the ambassadors to Belize (bundled $100,000-$200,000 for the Obama campaign in 2008), Canada ($50,000-$100,000), Czech Republic ($200,000-$500,000), Finland ($500,000+), France ($500,000+), Japan ($500,000+) and Norway ($200,000-$500,000).

Joining them are the current U.S. ambassadors to the European Union in Brussels, and to the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), based in Jakarta, both of whom bundled at least $500,000 each for the Obama campaign in 2008.
