Clinton as head of UN?

Reports have been surfacing once again that former President Bill Clinton is angling to become head of the UN. Some wonder about what complications this may have for Hilarys '08 race.

The New York Post reports on page 6:
"CAN you picture Bill Clinton as Kofi Annan's replacement as Secretary-General of the U.N.? Insiders say the former president agreed to partner up with his predecessor, No. 41, George H.W. Bush, in the tsunami relief effort partly for the international awareness to position him for the U.N. job. Clinton, who has been relatively low-profile since leaving the White House, is said to be ready for a new challenge now that he's finished with his autobiography. Assuming that Clinton's popularity in Africa and Europe would win the approval of the Security Council, the only fly in the ointment is the complications for wife Hillary's presidential hopes in 2008. "No one in the U.N. would want the President of the United States to be married to the head of the U.N., and therefore in control of Security Council votes," said one observer. Conversely, Americans wouldn't like the idea that the U.N. would be calling the shots in the Oval Office."
