It was a great opportunity botched, and it's been downhill from there. Former U.S. senator, former U.S. ambassador to New Zealand Carol Moseley Braun was the first African-American woman elected to the U.S. Senate, in 1992. But she couldn't get re-elected. U.S. President Bill Clinton named her his ambassador to New Zealand instead. Despite withdrawing from the campaign early this year, she intends to remain involved in politics.
