Obama Nominations Turn Sharply Political

"Since the beginning of his second term, President Obama has appointed campaign fundraisers, party allies and other political figures as ambassadors at a level that is now almost double what has prevailed in the last few administrations," the Los Angeles Times reports.

"More than 56% of Obama's 41 second-term ambassadorial nominations have been political, compared with an average of about 30% for recent administrations... Of the political nominees, at least half have had fundraising roles."
