Since her defeat in the 2016 election, speculation has churned about Hillary Clinton and what she set her mind to after losing a second run for the U.S. presidency.
On Friday, Clinton indicated that a dream job of hers, at least in the private sector, would be to run a high-profile company: Facebook.
Speaking at Harvard University before receiving an award on Friday, Clinton was asked a hypothetical question by moderator Maura Healey, a fellow Democrat and attorney general of Massachusetts: If Clinton could be chief executive of any company right now, which company would she choose?
“Facebook,” Clinton said without hesitating, as she and Healey paused to laugh with the audience.
Clinton said that she would want to be in charge of the social media giant because of the immense power it has over the world’s flow of information.
“It’s the biggest news platform in the world,” she said. “We can listen to really brilliant, experienced writers like David Ignatius and try to keep up with the news, but most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook.”
As it was reported earlier, Hillary Clinton said she would not run for president anymore, but won’t quit politics. As the polls closed, Clinton's supporters gathered in a New York City convention center, expecting to see history being made. But as the returns came in, the celebratory mood began to fade. And then, on what she thought would be her first day as president-elect, Hillary and Bill Clinton headed to their home in Chappaqua, New York.
