Karen Hughes, Good Will Ambassador?

Karen Hughes is great in America, where she knows her audience instinctively and can translate that knowledge for Bush and the rest of the White House team.

But she doesn't yet appear to have much of a clue how to deal with people in the Middle East.

She seems far more of a domestic expert, rather than a foreign one to me.

Where she may eventually be useful is translating back to the President and his team what she has learned about communicating with people abroad. In other words, instead of being a good will ambassador, she may come through as someone whose instincts the President and the Administration trust, which will allow them to hone their messages abroad more finely.
