I see that, among other things, she was Ambassador to Czechoslovakia. 1989 to 1992.
Erm, all the way through the whole Velvet Revolution thing. And she was appointed to that as a “political” ambassador, not a diplomatic service one. The Americans do this: ambassadors are often chosen from those who support the party of the President, handed out as baubles in fact to campaign sponsors. It tends to be the less important posts, true.
The thing is, I wonder how well she did? Anyone know?
