Today the White House announced its intent to nominate Judith McHale as Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs (h/t Matt).
Obviously the Obama administration couldn’t withstand the unrelenting pressure of the Count-Up Clock. I can only imagine the meetings that must have taken place over the weekend. Had I known it would be so effective, I would have put it up months ago.
Yet we’re not quite ready to take it down. There is still a confirmation process to follow, so The Clock will come down once that process is complete.
