Ideal candidate for Ambassador to St. Helena
http://thinkprogress.org/2008/12/05/mary-beth-buchanan-... /



Mary Beth Buchanan was appointed by President Bush to serve as U.S. attorney in Pittsburgh in Sept. 2001. Buchanan has held several significant posts within the Bush/Ashcroft/Gonzales Justice Department, most notably serving as director the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys.

Just last month, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Buchanans reign was expected to end. Indeed, when a new president is elected, U.S. attorneys of both parties generally submit their resignations to make way for the new appointees. But Buchanan has other plans:

Despite a new administration coming into power, U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan said she plans to stick around.

It doesnt serve justice for all the U.S. attorneys to submit their resignations all at one time, she said yesterday. <>

More than that, she said she would consider working in the Obama administration. She would not discuss what her future might hold beyond the U.S. attorneys office.

I am open to considering further service to the United States, Ms. Buchanan said.
