Speculating on the next ambassadors to countries blessed by warm and cozy climates? You could do worse than starting with this list: Twenty-one individuals who have donated to Obama’s campaign and the inaugural committee, and have also bundled campaign contributions for the president-elect.
The Presidential Inaugural Committee has, so far, released the names of nearly 450 individuals who have donated more than $200 toward the January festivities.
