Hillary Clinton given NEW ROLE – she’s back again


It may be safe to say Hillary Clinton’s best days are likely behind her, but at the age of 75, she’s not retiring just yet to a rocking chair on the front porch.

The former secretary of state has a new gig at Columbia University, where she will be teaching about global decision-making as a professor, according to The New York Times — Benghazi surely being an obligatory example of how not to make decisions.

The newspaper acknowledged that the job is a de facto consolation prize since she lost out to Donald Trump in her 2016 bid for the White House.

“For any liberal politician, but perhaps most of all for Mrs. Clinton — who years ago might have imagined herself in 2023 rounding out a historic presidency — there may be no softer landing ground than an Ivy League campus in New York City,” the Times noted.

“I feel good, but jittery,” Clinton said of her new role.


More from the Times:

As is the case with most enterprises embarked upon by Mrs. Clinton — who has long been a sort of national Rorschach test, beloved by many and loathed by many others — her new gig carries greater meaning than simply a return to her academic roots.


The new job at Columbia may allow Mrs. Clinton to re-emerge publicly as a foreign policy expert, after years of being depicted in the press and the public’s imagination as the presidential candidate vanquished by Donald J. Trump.


The class is called “Inside the Situation Room,” believe it or not, and is offered through Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs — tuition at the graduate school tops $65,000 per year.

The class “is part of a broader partnership between Mrs. Clinton and Dr. Yarhi-Milo, the school’s dean and a professor of international relations who studies the psychology and mechanics of decision-making, the Times reported. The duo are also establishing Columbia’s new Institute of Global Politics.

Columbia University declined to share details of Clinton’s compensation or whether it was in line with other faculty members — the odds are very good that it’s not.

In speaking to the Times, Clinton said she has not been paying attention to the Republican presidential primary but had an opinion on Trump potentially winning the nomination.

“I hope that people of good faith on all sides of the political divide understand what dire consequences there could be from him going back into the White House,” she said.

Trump spokesman Steven Cheung told the paper in response, “Hillary Clinton still can’t get over her devastating loss in 2016 and lives a miserable existence because she has to relive that glorious moment every single day.”
