Couple quick political notes

The article in the Washington Post about State hiring almost 1100 new Foreign Service peoples, one of the first steps towards doubling the size of the Foreign Service over the next decade. That would be great. I wonder if it's true?

And guess what?! We're voting in the first Democrats Abroad Global Primary! Did you know that this year, all us Dem folks living overseas have the ability to place 22+ delegates in Colorado? There's even a New Delhi walk-in voting center for those who missed the 31 Jan cut-off to enroll on-line, and voting centers in 30 other countries too. If you missed the cut-off, register with Democrats Abroad and check to see if you're in one of the countries that has a walk-in center... it might be right near by:

Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama

Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India (New Delhi), Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, Thailand

Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom
