Bill Clinton wants to play role as super-ambassador for Obama.
He says he could restore the goodwill for the United States abroad.
The Politico reported:
Former President Bill Clinton says he is open to the possibility of a role in the Obama administration but said he otherwise plans to be deferential to both the president and Clinton’s wife, the soon-to-be secretary of state.
Clinton could be named as a sort of super-ambassador on a specific issue like India, or on a broad topic like restoring goodwill for the United States abroad. He was deferential to President George W. Bush, accepting assignments on hurricane and tsunami relief in conjunction with the president’s father, former President George H.W. Bush.
Clinton told CNN International that he’s “just try to be a helpful sounding board” for Hillary Clinton when she becomes the nation’s chief diplomat.
“Unless he asks me to do something specific, which I’m neither looking for nor closed to,” Clinton said.
