82-year-old House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reportedly wants Democrat career politician Joe Biden to nominate her to become the next U.S. ambassador to Italy if Republicans take back the House in the November midterm elections.
Biden is holding the spot for the speaker, which is one reason he has yet to fill the position since taking office, a source told Fox Business.
Fox Business reports:
So far, 101 Biden ambassador nominees have been confirmed by the Senate, but Biden has been slow to name ambassadors to several countries, including Italy.
Presidents typically reserve ambassador posts in the most desirable locations for the people who have helped propel them to the White House, such as political operatives and donors.
The ambassador’s residence, Villa Taverna, boasts a pool, private gardens and a three-story wine cellar, in Rome. Video Below
