Seen at Cardwells in West St. Louis County, a reliable source says… former US Senator Jack Danforth, and Auditor Tom Schweich lunching with Kevin O’Malley, President Barack Obama’s nominee to be U.S. ambassador to Ireland.  Seems O’Malley, a Democratic, reached out to other St. Louisans who have had the rank of ambassador for some tips.  Danforth and Schweich obliged.   As it turns out, all of the current St. Louis residents who have served as US ambassadors are Republicans.  Not present – because they were out of town or otherwise occupied – Ann Wagner, Steve Brauer, Bert Walker and Sam Fox.
