President Obama is considering Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour for U.S. ambassadorships in the U.K. and France, according to a Bloomberg report

Wintour was a major bundler for Obama's presidential campaign. She co-hosted a high-profile fundraiser in New York in June and assisted with a line of Obama merchandise that aides say pulled in $40 million for the campaign. 

According to the Bloomberg report, Wintour has competition from Obama campaign finance chairman Matthew Barzun for the U.K. post and Marc Lasry for the top job at the U.S. Embassy in Paris.
