Top 5 - US Ambassadors to the UN

1. Jeane Kirkpatrick
2. Jeane Kirkpatrick
3. Jeane Kirkpatrick
4. Jeane Kirkpatrick
5. John Bolton

Kirkpatrick was one of the great ones and she will be missed.

The Miller Center culled two rememberences from Ken Andelman about Jeane Kirpatrick that was worth a glance (PDF). She was adored by Ronald Reagan and she got under Al Haig's skin. What's not to like about that? The sentiment that she was a brilliant woman who refused to wear a "Kick Me" sign as US Ambassador to the UN may be the best summation of her career.
