Paula Broadwell had ambitions beyond being the lady who wrote David Petraeus' biography. According to a report in the New York Post's Page 6, Broadwell was trying to leverage her book fame into becoming a TV regular, or an elected official. A source told Page 6 that Braodwell had ambitions of running for office before the scandal broke, but it doesn't say whether it was on a municipal, state or federal level. The interesting note is that she apparently, "had gotten requests from both parties to consider running for office," which, okay. Both parties! Everyone wants a piece of Broadwell.
She also had plans to start a production company, become a TV talking head, and possibly to also become a fitness expert. We're sure Runner's World or Cosmo will still have her, right guys?
