Bloody Hell!… Obama Said to Be Considering Anna Wintour as UK Ambassador
He really does hate Great Britain!
Barack Obama is said to be considering Vogue editor Anna Wintour as Ambassador to Great Britain.
You remember this snob, don’t you?
In case you didn’t know, author Lauren Weisberger based her novel The Devil Wears Prada on Wintour after working for this beast at Vogue.
Now Obama wants to make her ambassador of Great Britain.
President Barack Obama is considering nominating Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, to be either his next ambassador to the U.K. or France, as he looks to reward his biggest fundraisers with embassies that never seem out of fashion, according to two people familiar with the matter.
Wintour, 63, may have some competition for the London posting, with Matthew Barzun, the finance chairman of Obama’s presidential campaign, also interested in the job, officially known as ambassador to the Court of St. James’s, said the people, who requested anonymity.
Both Wintour and Barzun were among Obama’s biggest bundlers in the campaign, with each raising more than $500,000 to help re-elect the president. Marc Lasry, the managing partner and founder of Avenue Capital Management, covets the Paris embassy, said the people.
As Obama considers how to reshape his national security team, with nominations for secretary of state and defense coming as soon as this week, he also will be tending to his political organization.
Don’t be late.
