    To be fair he does have quite a few experts at his beck and call.

    He could send Biden if dear leader is not afraid of infecting the UNSC with foot in mouth disease.

    Definitely not Biden. Hillary would be fine, and Susan Rice is doing fine. But Obama obviously wants to go himself, and I don't see anything wrong with that.

    As long as we keep in mind his Global Poverty bill to send billions to the UN I don't see any harm in his doing this.

    The meeting he is attending is on nuclear nonproliferation. In fact, would a Global Poverty bill even go through the security council?

    Obama did some weapon proliferation work with Senator Lugar if I recall, so that gives him some experience in this area. His diplomatic work has been decent so far, getting a few minor things here and there. This is a good chance for him to show the American public what he can do.

    No it wouldn't. It would probably go through UNCTAD.

    So, would you hand your infant son over to an inexperienced Rabbi who, while not trained in anyway, wants to perform the office of a Mohel?

    Somehow, if you did, I don't think you'd have to worry about the problem of grandchildren.

    Must admit though, he sure has made a lot of moves for a community organizer

    what is so special about him that his presence is required at the Security Council?
    Nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear disarmament...

    And your problem with this is what exactly?

    Obama was elected by the people of this country. The president is, and always has been, Chief Diplomat. Whether you like it or not, the people of this country have decided that Obama is qualified for that particular job. So bitching that he's actually going to fulfill his duties is the height of absurdity.

    If you don't like that executive arrangement, you can move to England, where the head of state and head of government are divided between a queen and a prime minister.

    Joe Cirincione seems to think so.
