Summary

But there was no ambassador in the room, only Biden's chargé d’affaires at the U.S. Embassy, Yael Lempert.Jon Alterman, a senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said he's known Lempert for 20 years and credited her expertise and background working in previous administrations."But she doesn't have the standing as a personal emissary of the president that a confirmed ambassador would have," Alterman said.Alterman noted the foreign policy process may generally be more insular with Biden, who came to the White House with decades of experience in Washington, D.C., and a small cadre of inner circle advisers he has relied on for years, including Sullivan and Blinken.The White House has repeatedly dodged questions about when the president might roll out his first batch of high profile ambassadorships, even as reporting has already emerged about some of the choices.Biden is expected to name former Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel as ambassador to Japan and former State Department senior official Tom Nides as ambassador to Israel.
