Topic - Charles Rivkin
France has summoned U.S. Ambassador Charles Rivkin to address claims that the National Security Agency has spied on millions of French citizens, authorities said on Monday.
The diplomatic guessing game that comes with every president's second term is sweeping swank salons from Washington to Hollywood, as big-time Obama supporters gossip about who is expected to get the coveted titles of Mister Ambassador or Madam Ambassador.
Fifty years ago this week, a young American president traveled to France on his first state visit. But his three-day trip was overshadowed by his beautiful wife, who charmed the French and endeared herself to the frosty French leader, Charles de Gaulle.
Mr. Rivkin also noted the "extraordinarily warm welcome that greeted the French-speaking Mrs. Kennedy at every stop."
"A young, dynamic but untested U.S. president met the legendary French leader, whose World War II role and political vision had long made him a global figure."
