Bush nominates a new ambassador to Australia
Sunday, March 12, 2006
McCallum is an associate attorney-general for the Department of Justice and previously represented big tobacco companies at an Atlanta law firm. He also has a master's degree from Oxford University and is a Rhodes Scholar as well as having a bachelor's degree from Yale.
Former deputy secretary of state, Richard Armitage, said earlier this month that the fact Australia was still without an ambassador might indicate a "lackadaisical attitude" to the region.
McCallum is one of the 15 Skull and Bones members from the 1968 group, of which President Bush was also a member.
