Anna Wintour had a busy election season. As a bundler for the Obama campaign, she raised more than $500,000. She hosted splashy fundraisers around the country, including at the homes of Sarah Jessica Parker and Harvey Weinstein.
Now, all of that hard work might finally have a payoff. According to Bloomberg News, Obama is said to be considering Wintour to be the U.S. ambassador to either the U.K. or France. Two sources familiar with the matter told Bloomberg that Obama is seeking to reward his biggest fundraisers—but that Wintour may have competition from Matthew Barzun, the finance chairman of Obama's campaign, who wants the London job. Meanwhile, Marc Lasry, the managing partner and founder of Avenue Capital Managment, apparently "covets" the French posting.
