Beer diplomacy

From the Los Angeles Times today, we have a story about the US Ambassador there getting married to what may be the wealthiest woman in Mexico, and everyone hopes this will help patch up U.S.-Mexican relations.

Now if Bush could only just dispatch elegible bachelors (of both sexes) as ambassadors to every country in Latin America (why not include the entire foreign service?), perhaps he would have a better chance at leveraging some of that soft power everyone's been talking about, and regain some of its declining influence in the region.

When it comes to the male of the species if there is no hard power this whole diplomatc effort will just go limp.
