Ambassador Anna Wintour?

No wonder Vogue editor Anna Wintour is hosting glittery events for Barack Obama.

Wintour, 62, reportedly wants an ambassadorship from Obama, possibly even the highly coveted one in London.

Wintour grew up in England, in the mod-happy swinging 60s, but moved to New York in the early 1970s. Her father was a British journalist and her mother an American philanthropist. Her younger brother is currently the political editor for The Guardian,which has reported on Wintour’s desire for the ambassadorship. (A trial balloon, perhaps?)

She is also a bundler for Obama, and on Thursday is hosting a dinner along with “Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker for Obama, Michelle Obama, whom she has advised on fashion matters, and two lucky winners of a small-donor raffle for the president’s re-election campaign.

 In the 2008 cycle, Wintour bundled between $100,000 to $200,000 for Democratic candidates. In 2011, she gave $5,000 to Barack Obama. And she has a long history of supporting Democratic candidates in her magazine, where she has put Hillary Clinton andMichelle Obama on the cover.
