Leach and China

Leach To China?

Foreign Policy:
It's the job many consider the most important one outside of the presidential cabinet. Who will be U.S. ambassador to Beijing...

Another name to watch is former Rep. Jim Leach, the Iowa Republican who broke party ranks early on to endorse Obama's presidential candidacy. Leach, recently named as director of the Harvard Kennedy School's Institute of Politics, has also been mentioned as a possible USAID administrator. It wasn't clear if Leach was one of the people said to have turned the job down. (A call to the IOP wasn't immediately returned.)
