Are we looking at the next secretary general of the UN?
I saved the blog page because the first thing I thought was: WHAT???? What does that have to do with the States? Naturally, I went searching for what was going on in Latvia for the speaker to have mentioned it. When I gathered all the links for this post, I went back to find the blog, no luck. So whoever you are, thanks for the topic and for writing about your day.
I went to Wiki and came across Vaira Vike Frieberga, the President of Latvia who was re-elected in 2003. She studied here in Canada and taught psychology in Montreal. She actively pursued inclusion into NATO and the EU and supports the US invasion of Iraq.
Then I came across this article with the headline: Time for a Woman at the U.N. saying that she has expressed interest in the secretary general post.
And now, of course, comes this headline: Latvian president to run for UN secretary general.
After the comment at the University, I think I'll place my bets on Vaira to win. How about you?
UPDATE: I found the blog!! Capitalist Pig vs Socialist Swine and here is the blog entry.
