This should be interesting: A woman, the first woman, as US ambassador to the Philippines.

Having been slightly burned only a few months ago, when officials of the Department of State assured me, over a tasty lunch with other journalism fellows, that "conflict resolution expert" Cameron Hume was a sure thing as the next ambassador to Manila, I could not help but be skeptical at first. (My story came out on May 14.) But Kristie Kenney looks like the real thing: a White House "personnel announcement," plus a story in the US embassy website.
