It’s been a busy few weeks for political sex scandals. First we found out that Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a love child—well, possibly two—more than 10 years ago without wife Maria Shriver‘s knowledge.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wants to head the World Bank after leaving the State Department in 2012, several sources have told Reuters. Her press secretary denied the rumor, but Clinton publicly stated in January she wouldn’t continue as Secretary of State if President Obama is reelected in 2012 because it’s an exhausting “24/7 job.” If the World Bank’s current president were to step down at the end of his term in 2012 and Clinton were to take over — which would require the approval of its 187 member countries — she would be the first woman in history to do so.
