Bill Clinton is rumored to be in the running for the next ambassador to Ireland.

The nation’s 42nd president may well be rewarded for his ferocious campaigning for Barack Obama and other Democrats during the election season, The Christian Science Monitor reports.

While on his third trip to Ireland this year — this one in November — Clinton quipped, “I could run for president of Ireland,” if only he owned a home there, The Monitor reports.

No word yet from the White House — or even Clinton’s wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She was in Dublin on Thursday for a European security conference.

“I cannot comment on what President Obama might do in the second term; it’s his decision,” she said, The Monitor reports. “But I would think that my husband will be here many times in the future and doing the work that he has been doing without having the title of ambassador.”

The Clintons are popular in Ireland, The Monitor reports.

As president, Clinton was critical in bringing the conflict in Northern Ireland to a peace agreement in 1998 — and both Clintons are active in moving the peace process forward.

Northern Ireland’s leaders saluted both Clintons in Belfast on Friday and in Bill Clinton was recently named a “Freeman of Limerick,” and a statue of him was erected at a golf course there, The Monitor reports.
