Ambassadorship To Japan?

President-elect Donald Trump will need to appoint ambassadors to foreign countries, including Japan.

The thought occurred to me in a dream the other night about being appointed U.S. Ambassador to Japan.

It would be logical, as Mr. Spock would say.


  • A Trump supporter before it became fashionable.

  • Two degrees in political science (A.A. from El Camino College and B.A. from California State University, Long Beach).

  • Some state government experience (as field representative to Assemblyman Paul Bannai).

  • Traveled to Japan eight times and visited many regions.

  • Knows some big Japanese celebrities. 

  • Has hosted dinners there (the experience would come in handy in hosting dinners in the ambassador's residence).

  • Published writer of articles on Japanese pop culture in the U.S. and Japan.

  • Has some name recognition in Japan.

  • Wrote a Japan travel guide.

If appointed, I'd have to come out of retirement. But for such an opportunity, hell yes, I'd do it!
