Is Ireland big enough for Bill Clinton?

The chatter about what Mr. Clinton might do next has often tended toward the grandiose. In the past, there was talk of making an exception just this once and nominating President Clinton to serve as United Nations secretary-general. (No American has ever served in that post.)

More recently, the former president – who served successfully as unofficial explainer-in-chief in President Obama’s reelection campaign – has emerged as the darling candidate of some Mideast experts, should Mr. Obama decide to name a special envoy for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

But now come the Washington rumors that what Clinton may really covet is the US ambassadorship to Ireland.
