Bloomberg breaks the news which witch Wintour denies.
UK Daily Mail: Rumors that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour may be headed back to her native England to serve as an ambassador for the United States are becoming more and more credible.
Two unidentified people are cited as confirming reports that President Obama is considering appointing Wintour as the next ambassador to England.
Wintour, 63, has been a strong supporter of the President and was one of his top bundlers in the last campaign where she raised millions for his re-election bid.
I am reminded of Bill Clinton‘s payback to Brit Pamela Digby Churchill Hayward Harriman as ambassador to France in 1993. “If you put a blindfold on her in a crowded room, she could smell out the powerful man,” mused an admiring friend to Vanity Fair in 1988.
Pamela, by design, positioned herself at the top of the Democratic social heap in DC after decades of sucking up to men on both sides of the pond. She was, in a word, a courtesan.
The NYT reviewed Sally Bedell Smith‘s 1996 meticulous unraveling of Pamela‘s life as a “promiscuous social mountaineer and naked self-promoter” and “the powerful Democratic doyenne and woman of substance.”
Wintour only bundled money; Harriman bundled men and money. “She could make a man, not just in bed.”
