Away from the podium: what does Sean McCormack do?

Earlier this month, I made a comment that most Americans don’t know who is the Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs (see the very end of this post). While most of the readers probably know who Sean is, his timely DipNote post from the ASEAN meeting in Singapore gives me a chance to highlight that Public Affairs in State is a global gig to satisfy domestic requirements. It’s a brief yet interesting look into what’s happening in front and behind of the cameras.
