US President Barack Obama has picked a major Democratic fundraiser as ambassador to Britain, a theology professor to represent the United States at the Vatican and a former member of the 9/11 Commission to be the top US diplomat in India. The White House on Wednesday announced a slate of top diplomats in capitals from Tokyo to Paris. The group fills many of the highest profile jobs in the foreign service and will be crucial representatives of Obama and his State Department with US allies. For the plum London appointment, Obama turned to Louis Susman, a retired vice chairman of Citigroup Corporate and Investment Banking. The White House also announced its plan to nominate Miguel H. Diaz, an associate professor of theology at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University in Collegeville, Minn., for the top job at the Vatican. Obama nominated former US Rep. Tim Roemer of Indiana to be his ambassador to New Delhi. The former September 11 commissioner endorsed Obama during his primary campaign and was a strong advocate of Obama's foreign policy approach.
