The rumor returns! Bloomberg reports that Anna Wintour is under consideration as Barack Obama's next ambassador to either the U.K. or France. (Intriguing!) Sources requested anonymity when discussing the potential appointment, but revealed that Matthew Barzun, finance chairman of Obama's campaign, is also keen on getting the job. During his election, Wintour raised more than $500,000 to help re-elect the president making her one of his top fundraisers. We reported in June that the Guardian also heard murmurs she was a potential candidate for a political gig. Vogue's spokeswoman Megan Salt insists that Anna isn't leaving 4 Times Square any time soon: "She's very happy with her current job."
