Wilson Center President Leaving for France?

The Washington Post's Al Kamen is reporting that former Congresswomen Jane Harman (D-CA), who is now the Director, President, and CEO of the Wilson Center, could be tapped by President Obama to be the next US Ambassador to France.

Harman is the first female Director, President, and CEO of the think tank.  Here is the Wilson Center's section on France.

In late 2012, there was speculation that Harman could become the next head of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).  John Brennan was eventually selected for that position.

The Wilson Center was recently ranked as the 11th best think tank in the world by the annual University of Pennsylvania think tank rankings.  It was also ranked as the 6th best think tank in the United States.
