Tomorrow morning, I’ll be testifying at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s hearings on the foreign policy implications of sovereign wealth funds.  A sneak preview:  there aren’t a lot of foreign policy implications, except for the massive crimp sovereign funds impose on efforts at democracy promotion.  I anticipate rivers of sweat pouring down my face as the Senators grill me — but this will be due to the horrific heat that’s been plaguing the nation’s capital and killing the AC in half of the rooms in my hotel.  The hearings are open to the public, so I hereby call on all DC fans of danieldrezner.com to mobilize.  I fully expect to hear shouts of “Yes he can!” right before I provide my testimony.  UPDATE:  Hey, that was fun!!  I’ll provide an update on the experience later tonight, for the three of you that care.
