Some of you might unfairly assume we were only talking about Ms. Devold merely because she's gorgeous, blonde, and has been seen in public in skin-tight leather pants emblazoned with American flags. You underestimate us pitiably. Here's an interview in which she describes her work boosting defense spending in Norway and establishing the relationship of Norway (a non-EU member state) with the EU and with the other allies. And her competitor, Portuguese EU commissioner Antonio Vitorino, is here; here's an interview where he discusses fighting organized crime (Vitorino is a former judge on Portugal's Constitutional Court, who appears competent but with less expertise than Ms. Devold in foreign and security affairs; he also appears bespectacled and balding, but that's incidental dicta, as the constitutional lawyers say). So there.
Of course (and even though she may look better than Rummy in tight leather U.S. flag pants), Her Excellency ain't nearly the most beautiful foreign policy hand in my book. (0) opinions -- Add your opinion
