I am not an admirer of Senator DeMint, but as a diplomat, Mrs Aponte should be impartial. In my opinion, as an ambassador, she should not have been championing the cause of gay rights in a foreign country, no matter how right it appears to be. Neither one of my senators voted to confirm her, which is not surprising because they are both Republicans. I also read somewhere that Senator Lindsey Graham had promised to vote to confirm her, but I noticed in this article that he did not vote. I am sure she is a capable lady, so if the confirmation is brought up again, maybe she will have better luck.
