Those who can't do, teach.

Hillary Clinton is fresh off her book tour chronicling her second straight presidential campaign loss. The former first lady and secretary of state is now looking for a new gig.

According to reports, Clinton has her eyes set on teaching at one of the most prestigious universities in the country. The New York Daily News reported Clinton is in talks to take on a lecturing role at New York's Columbia University.

Columbia is an Ivy League school, and Clinton would be assuming an esteemed "University Professor” role in which she lectures at will in large classrooms on campus. The gig would also involve the university formally housing her records in a pseudo-presidential library.

Clinton, a law school graduate, may eventually specialize at the law school or School of International and Public Affairs.

According to the New York Daily News, who broke the story:

The former U.S. Secretary of State and presidential nominee is in talks with Columbia University to take on a formal role at the Ivy League — and potentially house her archives there, multiple sources told the Daily News.

One option under discussion is an esteemed “University Professor” role that would allow Clinton to lecture across a range of schools and departments without the requirement of a strict course load, one source said.

A former law professor, Clinton could maintain the vaunted but vague role indefinitely or decide at a later date she wants to settle at Columbia's celebrated law school or maybe the School of International and Public Affairs, the source said.

Clinton's decision to get into teaching would come in the next few months after her “What Happened” book tour, sources say.
