America's Most Accomplished Diplomat


Please do listen to my interview with Thomas Pickering. This guy is so incredibly accomplished as a diplomat, and he is worth hearing. The Ajay Bruno Show - Thomas Pickering Interview 07/09 by Ajay Bruno | Politics Conservative Podcasts

Somehow I doubt Secretary Hughes is going to grant me an interview.....
And this guy was a diplomat more than a politician.
Also, how did he?

Sure. That wasn't clear from your OP. Maybe this belongs in Current Events as opposed to American History?

I'm going to put a word in for John Quincy Adams. https://learnodo-newtonic.com/john-q...ccomplishments

and https://www.amazon.com/Quincy-Founda.../dp/0313226369

JQ Adams had a great career. Unfortunately, the low point was his Presidency, but he accomplished a lot both before and after being President.
