Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may never be an American president, but her political career isn’t necessarily over.
According to a shocking new report, Democratic White House nominee Joe Biden — declared by the media as the nation’s newest president-elect — is said to be considering Clinton for the role of United Nations ambassador in his administration.
Hillary floated for ambassador job
The Democrat has promised a stark reversal from just about every aspect of Trump’s presidency, and on the matter of foreign policy, that appears to mean ditching “America First” for globalism.
According to Fox News, The Washington Post first reported that Clinton is “being discussed” for an ambassadorial role with the United Nations. An anonymous person reportedly told the Post that Clinton is seen as a way to restore America’s global prestige after it was supposedly diminished by Trump.
Democrats have complained throughout Trump’s presidency about his “isolationist” approach to foreign policy, accusing Trump of disregarding expertise, snubbing allies, and reneging on global commitments to human rights as he trashed institutions like NATO and sought withdrawals from military conflicts in Syria and Afghanistan, as The Hill notes. By contrast, Clinton is a hawkish interventionist and a doctrinaire globalist.
“I’m letting them know that America is back,” Biden said of foreign leaders at a Tuesday appearance in Delaware, according to Fox. “We’re going to be back in the game.”
Warren, Sanders snubbed?
Before her doomed 2016 presidential candidacy, Clinton served as secretary of State under former President Barack Obama, a stint in which she garnered controversy for her role in the 2012 Benghazi consulate attack in Libya, as well as accusations that she engaged in pay-to-play schemes through the Clinton Foundation.
As Clinton eyes another role in the White House, two liberals who represent the far-left of the party may be out of luck: progressive Sens. Bernie Sanders (VT) and Elizabeth Warren (MA).
Both were, at times, seen as forceful contenders in the Democratic presidential primary before they bowed out and endorsed Biden.
Unfortunately, their loyalty may not be rewarded with White House roles after Democrats suffered losses in the House and failed to reclaim the Senate majority, leaving Dems wary of elevating lawmakers on the far-left, the Daily Wire reports.
“The Biden administration has to be a lot more sensitive of where you come from if you’re looking at members of Congress,” Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) told Politico in a recent interview, according to the Daily Wire. “We cannot afford to put any seats in jeopardy.”
