Ambassador Peter Buttigieg?

Axios is reporting that Biden may make him Ambassador to China.

“Mayor Pete” has a more politically-friendly appeal, but it’s true that in his personal life he has always preferred to be called Peter.

No harm having some of course. Voters are not interested in other countries. They vote on jobs. It's the economy, stupid as Bill said which Hillary famously ignored to her peril. It will hold even more true in 2024.

[quote] Pete should try to run for congress.

I agree, but first, I think he'll need to find a district to move to and establish himself where he can be elected. .. Indiana's 2nd, in which South Bend is located, is pretty red overall, and just re-elected their incumbent rethug by nearly 62% of the vote.

Basically I thnk pete is a guy who can do pretty much anything he sets his mind to. I wouldn't cancel out Congress or governor even in a red state.

R20 When it comes to the same sex spouses of Diplomats in China, the Chinese government gives them a diplomatic family visa, although not a spouse visa.

There are a few gay Ambassadors in China, but none as high profile as this. Normally, US Ambassadors to China has some experience with China. Huntsman and Locke both spoke Chinese, Terry Brandstad (the latest one) knew Xi Jinping in the past. However, knowing China isn’t a requirement for the job. There is an entire Embassy that handles all that shit. The Ambassador is more than a figurehead of course, but he doesn’t really need to know much as he has people both stateside and in the Embassy who do the policy stuff.

China is probably the most high profile Ambassadorship there is. The UK or Canada may be fun, but politically totally irrelevant and unimportant.

Pete speaks French, Spanish, Arabic, some Italian, some Norwegian. But he doesn’t speak Chinese. So this appointment doesn’t make any sense.

Pete should be the DNC chairman. He’s the only one that knows and understands perception in messaging and he’s fantastic beating back right wing conspiracy garbage and making the Democrats case.

Ambassador to China is a wasted appointment.

by Anonymousreply 5912/09/2020

Besides not speaking Chinese, there's the matter of the lodgings.

Although the example of Biden's election at 78 gives someone like Buttigieg a long window in which to become president - although Harold Stassen is a decidedly alternative example - a post like China gives him a possibly more realistic career path, as Secretary of State.

by Anonymousreply 6212/09/2020

The only thing he might go for is governor.

An ambassadorship does not raise his national profile or recognition. He disappears. Do you know who the current ambassador is? See?

You need a political perch not a resume for a job interview. Obama's resume was paper thin. Trump had none.

Pete is not going to win a statewide race in Indiana. That's his big political problem and why he wants a Biden appointment.

R64 yes I absolutely am.

R65 who knows what he wants. It's all guessing and parlor games. There are more governors that go to the White House than ambassadors or cabinet members. You can buy an ambassadorship btw.

Convince the DNC of that. They elect the chairman. And he already put himself in the running once before and dropped out before the vote. Lack of support? It seems like a very "political" vote, like something out of high school.

It really does seem like Biden allowed others to choose his cabinet for him, and those people are clearing the path for Harris. Still, China will be our most important ambassadorship going forward. This is a serious test for Mayor Pete.

A DC assignment would be better for starting a family, lots of kids in the foster system there. China is more likely to give a gay couple a panda than a baby.

This seems like it was floated by either Pete himself or his enemies. There have been few if any leaks from Biden's team about personnel picks.. or anything else really. It would be very unusual for such a high profile and important position to go to someone without any experience in the region.

Methinks once he didn't get his desired job as UN Ambassador, he's said no thanks to the rest.

He's likely moving on to Plan B-whatever that is- with regard to his political future and run for President down the track.

He probably has to do that outside the tent anyway with Harris and her cronies likely thwarting him inside the Harris/Biden show.
