Sheryl Sandberg leaned in so far, she might’ve fallen into Hillary Clinton’s cabinet. According to Politico’s Morning Money, there’s a chance the Facebook COO will serve as Clinton’s Treasury secretary, should Clinton win the White House:

Early speculation held that Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg probably wouldn’t leave California to return to DC to serve as Treasury Secretary in a Clinton administration. That’s changed lately as MM hears more and more that she could return … The left may not love her roots in the Bob Rubin wing of the Democratic Party but her star power and historic potential would probably blow away any opposition.

If she were to take on the role, Sandberg would be the first woman to lead the Treasury. Not bad for someone who was fired from her first two babysitting jobs.
