"President-elect Trump should consider her for the position," said Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), whose district includes Trump Tower in Manhattan. She added that Clinton "would make an excellent Ambassador to the United Nations."

Clinton "will never stop working," Maloney said. "She will always make a difference and will always be a part of the dialogue in a positive way to advance the values of America."

It would be a shocking turn of events if Trump heeded Maloney's call. Trump and Clinton faced off in one of the nastiest campaigns in presidential history, with the president-elect frequently calling for Clinton to be jailed and accusing her of being part of a rigged system.
