President Obama, as expected, announced Tuesday that he will nominate Matt Barzun — Obama 2008 finance chairman, then ambassador to Sweden and again Obama 2012 finance chairman — to be ambassador to Great Britain.

Obama, once again bitterly disappointing the Loop, tapped local attorney and huge bundler and contributor John Phillips — his original Italian family name was Filippi — to be ambassador to Italy.
