Ban the Good?

I was, perhaps, a bit flip in my initial assessment of recently-sworn-in UN head Ban Ki-moon. Other Koreabloggers seem to think he's da shiznit. Check out GI Korea's take here, and the Nomad's take here.

Please note, fellas, that Ban's been sworn in, but he doesn't start his term until next year, so he can say whatever he wants right now. The proof is in the pudding-- what will he actually say and do during his term? I'll remain politely skeptical until I see some real, hard-hitting pronouncements. (Ban does, of course, have the support of the anti-diplomat John Bolton, which is-- pardon the pun-- a red flag for lefties everywhere.)
