Do you know what's not in the CNN article?* Or this Reuters one? Or this AP one?

A crucial detail from Nemazee's bio:

National Finance Chair - Hillary Clinton for President, 2008

National Finance Chair - Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC)

New York Finance Chair - John Kerry for President 2002 -2004

He was also nominated by President Clinton to be U.S. Ambassador to Argentina.

*The article linked there at is actually a Dow Jones Newswire story, not a CNN-bylined story.
