A lengthy quest by former state Sen. Diane Watson for an ambassadorship paid off Wednesday when she became the U.S. envoy to the Federated States of Micronesia, a 1,700-mile-long chain of tropical islands in the Pacific Ocean. Watson, 65, was sworn in at a State Department ceremony during which her 90-year-old mother, Dorothy Watson, held the Bible. The new ambassador is scheduled to leave for Micronesia in October. A Los Angeles native, Watson won her state Senate seat in 1978.
