Facebook’s chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg might be considering a Cabinet job as Treasury Secretary if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, Politico reported.

The “Lean In” author would be the first woman to lead the Treasury Department, according to Politico.

“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,” Politico’s Ben White wrote Thursday.

According to Forbes, Sandberg – a former chief of staff to former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers whose net worth is pegged at $1.44 billion – has helped boost revenues at Facebook 66-fold since becoming COO in 2008.
