Are expecting a child -- perhaps children.
They could be twins on the way who knows now over the Braves get the fabulous news that the queen of America Ana -- -- could be on the way over that.
As the new ambassador to London and all perhaps.
The ambassador to Paris I think -- -- Paris.
Fashion wise certainly food -- -- -- legacy of politics editor -- foxnews.com.
Is with us now.
With the latest on this diplomatic cup golf hole.
How -- -- as an ambassador John really.
Well we're gonna have to say right now this coming out of Bloomberg.
They're reporting that and winter as you said is the vogue editor in chief.
I'm also perhaps better known as the supposedly inspiration for Meryl Streep character in -- -- product.
Is supposedly -- reportedly being considered by Obama for an ambassadorship to either.
Paris office or London office.
Winters office is not confirming it we reached out to them.
And -- kind of gave the usual standard liners -- well this is just a rumor.
She's perfectly happy where she is.
But it wasn't -- denial so -- you know it's certainly possible that she's being considered it wouldn't be out of the ordinary.
You you might ask what is you know the editor in chief of one of our leading style magazines being doing.
Possibly being considered for diplomatic position -- It's also not uncommon.
These days in the over the past probably three decades.
Ambassadorships are often chosen from the ranks of political donors political -- -- not necessarily from the foreign service especially for Western Europe.
And for and -- church is one of Obama's top campaign bottlers.
Raise their bundled something like over 500000 dollars in the last campaign -- -- in the top -- And despite the denials and no comments from the White House.
It's possible that she is on the shortlist.
-- -- And -- and what about -- Republican reaction anything coming from that side as to the prospect of someone I can only until getting this ambassadorship.
Nothing yet because.
-- -- right now it's still a little bit in the rumor mill.
Totally confirmed yet I'm sure if it comes out and Obama actually nominate sir you're you're gonna see quite a backlash from Republicans -- just questioned her credentials.
-- would have to come for confirmation so we can only imagine and and perhaps hopeful that we could see that spectacle on Capitol Hill.
With Anna winter.
Being going through -- confirmation hearings senate.
Now that would be fun I'm sure I was even really analyses on the side and -- -- they're happy -- All right -- legacy of politics editor of foxnews.com thanks very much indeed John let's bring in the political panel now Brad Blake and his former deputy assistant.
To president George W.
Bush -- -- is former Press Secretary to the -- Democratic National Committee good to see above Brad let me stop you -- Anna wintour as ambassador to London -- -- what a fabulous.
-- -- -- I SEC wrong within assuming that her financial -- -- order.
She's accomplished American.
There's no reason why the president.
Should not a pleasure to be -- for you to -- order France more power to work I think she'll be very eclectic in.
We'll probably have represented America very well.
Tell me what you a great.
But it sounds pretty experts agree I I believe that I think what's different here is that we recognize the name.
Typically of -- there might be considered for some for something like this you could go back to the Bush Administration.
People would raise 700000.
Dollars for the president we're points opposing the -- controversial would not just because they knew they had.
Didn't fund -- or because of their jobs is usually something else involved -- From all indications she should be able to serve her country very well.
All right Brad let's let's breakup the -- on -- here and you do -- I had everything.
And get to the fiscal cliff.
-- grabbed -- really I mean we do not seem to me on the face of it to be any further ahead than we -- Three months ago six months ago one year ago maybe even three years ago why can they not get anything done.
You know it's deja Vu all over again we're back as if the election never happened the status quo.
Was voted back in in governing but I don't think the American people expected and governance but yet we're seeing the status quo be maintained.
Being transient now having said that.
After the November elections Republicans came and understood that will have to give up something on the revenue side except the president did not meet.
Manner of Boehner.
And McConnell we eagle conciliation what the president said basically -- what he said 2009.
Is we want elections have consequences either mandate.
Well he wouldn't -- he should surely didn't win but isn't a mandate and I think the president's lack of leadership.
He's getting these parties together really.
Really tells the story the president could lead this thing to a conclusion in short order that he wanted to I think he thinks he's in better position letting -- -- -- -- -- Because then the law takes over the tax increases happen as a matter of law and the president can fight another day in January.
Tony is that -- is that a -- point that that the president said he's got a mandate here but.
Really wasn't that much of a mandate that has stayed with the Republicans it was kind of -- didn't much as as Brad says it was the status quo.
That's how does that how does that interpret itself as a mandate.
But for the mandate sounds like a little bit pregnant the president Brady campaign news here's what's interest you -- -- competed in the -- military code.
From Bayer can do -- John Boehner wrote a couple of days after the election he said on the table for cuts ought to be obamacare.
They'll wait they just we just had an entire election around Obama carry around a central issue about this today on the fiscal -- which is.
Whether or not we're going to raise taxes on the very wealthy the president made that case just to the astonishment of many that he was actually running on it can't -- campaign promise to raise taxes on the very wealthy.
And he was reelected as far as mandate goes a larger mandate.
Then George W.
Bush who proclaim demanded and got new mills and got no resistance from these quarters -- -- much more narrow election I think the president is.
Definitely with a mandate and not only that he doesn't have to call -- mandate it's clear that choice was we want you to lead now Republicans say.
Agree with you we will still become intransigence we -- Or -- in transit we have been and we will and we will give you -- room to compromise without us well that that he -- then they can't be that I think eventually however.
That the that the right is going to -- -- on the left is going to spend some but John Boehner is not going to get the deal that was offered last time so he's gonna have to move more this is not.
The -- situations was not a status quo election.
Democrats got more votes across the board include.
Including in those gerrymandered house reasons so we did definitely put it.
Good seats in the house at my house is clearly Republican won't hold that thought for a second Brad comment -- I've got to get lost -- from both the music just very quickly.
Brad in this and reminds me sometimes of the Israeli Palestinian conflict and everybody knows what the outlines of a deal.
Have to be and will ultimately be but nobody is willing.
Quite to get that we know only going to have to raise taxes -- some way.
However that is done we know we need major spending cuts and we know really where those cuts -- going to have to come from entitlement spending.
So -- -- do you think ultimately will get there in this is just all about Paul string do the American people have the prospect of a deal at some point Brad.
No I don't think they have one now but again -- takes leadership depressing game called leadership down to.
The White House the president if you -- to the hill the presence is -- instead of off to campaign in places like Pennsylvania.
There are no votes to be -- in Pennsylvania they conciliatory.
Men -- on both sides have to be agreed to by the parties -- talking past each other we're talking to each other.
I'll make this point in the possibility it could make this point about this when the president didn't go in -- all the American people in the health -- today.
Even though the mid -- people supported most aspects of the Health Care Reform law.
They still -- and -- overall because he didn't engage them it would be suicidal for this president not to explain what he wants to be -- to the American people and to enlist their support.
And right now if he's saying I want the taxes on the very wealthy that they have to chip in -- and Republicans are saying what we think it ought to be seniors.
We will not 65 and 6060 -- 67 year olds often Medicare then your priorities are pretty real pretty well laid out for you.
All right Tony well -- form.
Press Secretary for the Democratic National Committee I'm Brad Blake when former deputy assistant.
President George H god George W.
Bush he's -- good to see about gentlemen let's -- that there is some reason.
In Washington very soon car.
