Obama taps childhood friend for diplomatic post
Thursday - 8/1/2013, 9:00pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is nominating a childhood friend to represent the U.S. at the United Nations office and other international organizations in Geneva. He's also tapping a major fundraiser for his re-election campaign to be ambassador to Morocco.
If confirmed by the Senate, Pamela Hamamoto will have the rank of ambassador.
Hamamoto was Obama's classmate during his Hawaii school days. She introduced him at a fundraiser last year and raised more than $500,000 for his campaign. Hamamoto was previously an executive at Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch.
Dwight Bush Sr. is Obama's pick to be ambassador to Morocco. Bush is president of a financial consulting firm in Washington and also bundled more than $500,000 for Obama's campaign.
