Ambassador to Canada: Who is David Jacobson?

Yes, he was one of Obama’s bundlers who hauled in a lot of cash for the 2008 campaign, but officials in Canada consider it a prerequisite that the U.S. ambassador to Ottawa have the president’s ear, and Jacobson has that as a member of Obama’s inner circle.
