Frank McKenna as Ambassador to the US update

McKenna accepted the post as ambassador. Furthermore, much has been made of his involvement in the Caryle Group which is a merchant bank in Washington. Sitting on its board has caused him to be have a personal connection to George Bush Sr. Furthermore, it would appear Brian Mulroney has put in a few good words for our new ambassador with the President who phoned the President for what was schedualed as a brief 10 minute call, which lasted for an hour.

This confirms to me that McKenna is an excellent choice as ambassador to the US and will probably be as effective an ambassador as Canada could appoint short of appointing Brian Mulroney.

Secondly, isn't it a touch strange that the Prime Minister from a decade ago has more influence in the current White House than the current Prime Minister of Canada?
