Graham, McCain: What about Negroponte?

Reader CT Voter notes that John Negroponte, Bush’s ambassador to Iraq, and another much esteemed career diplomat–although his tenure as U.S. Ambassador to Honduras came under criticism–didn’t have Mideast experience. He’d been at the U.N. dealing with Mideast issues as part of his tenure there but that’s not the kind of specific expertise Graham and McCain seem to want. It’s all very odd. TPM readers are encouraged, though, to search for more examples of McCain and Graham not asking for regional expertise for a major appointment.
