Barack Obama could be the next president of Harvard University

https://www.aol.com/article/news/2017/06/16/barack-obama-could-be-the-next-president-of-harvard-university/22360782/

QUOTE

The Boston Globe has thrown his name into the ring as a possible successor to replace current Harvard President Drew Faust, the school's first female president who announced this week she is planning to step down from the high profile role.

While the paper said it's possible the university decides to give the job to someone already at the school, they could look at alums as well.

Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991 and served as the first African American editor of the school's prestigious Harvard Law Review.

The former president taught also constitutional law for more than a decade at the University of Chicago Law School and was often critiqued during his time in the White House for his "professorial" tendencies.

UNQUOTE

He would make an excellent President there also, if he wishes it.

6. I just want the Obamas to be happy

And BTW going in front of the Congressional Committees and the Mr. Mueller
and telling what he knows and what he told to Ryan and McConnel last summer
might be nice too.

8. If offered he should take it because.........

Malia would not have to pay tuition. The dependent's of most University staff receive this benefit.

9. He should consider it

now that the most prestigious University (Trump University) has been closed. Obama would never have been invited to teach at the most illustrious & awesomest University ever. Second rate schools like Harvard or Yale are the best he can hope for. Sad.

10. That would be cool!

Hell, I'd love to see him as Secretary-General of the UN. But he's not eligible because he's from one of the five permanent members of the Security Council. Those are China, France, Russia (formerly the Soviet Union), the United Kingdom, and the United States.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permanent_members_of_the_United_Nations_Security_Council


Article 97 of the United Nations Charter determines that the Secretary-General is "appointed by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council." As the recommendation must come from the Security Council, any of the five permanent members of the Council can veto a nomination. Most Secretaries-General are compromise candidates from middle powers and have little prior fame. Unofficial qualifications for the job have been set by precedent in previous selections. The appointee may not be a citizen of any of the Security Council's five permanent members.[7] The General Assembly resolution 51/241 in 1997 stated that in the appointment of "the best candidate", due regard should be given to regional (continental) rotation of the appointee's national origin and to gender equality.[8]:5
