Cardinal Mazarin used princely diplomats for colorful pageantry, the ambassadors duelled over order of precedence. For diplomatic substance the autocrat used self-effacing Père Joseph. Amb. Baldi fails to explain why diplomats should worry about virtual pageantry, or use twitter the way the raper was used then, rather than focus on outcome. The difference from then to now is that distractions nowadays come a dozen blogs a minute (my blog notwithstanding).
