In the latest blunder for an Obama administration ambassadorial nominee, prolific Democratic campaign fundraiser Noah Mamet admitted Thursday that he has never been to Argentina â€“ the nation where he wants to represent U.S. interests as America’s top diplomat. The White House has tapped him to be the U.S. ambassador to the South American country.
‘Mr. Mamet have you been to Argentina,’ asked Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio during the Californian’s confirmation hearing.
‘I haven’t had the opportunity yet to be there,’ he admitted, ashen-faced.
