Best Next Job for Wilma Webb (2001)

Mayor of Denver

During husband Wellington Webb's ten years (and counting) as Denver's mayor, Wilma Webb was always by his side -- even when she was doing double duty as regional secretary of the Department of Labor. As the self-proclaimed First Lady of Denver, she's seen it all -- and no doubt said it all to Wellington, weighing in on the city's civic and cultural affairs. Isn't it time for the power behind the throne to take a seat? And we're not talking Diana DeGette's congressional seat, which Wilma reportedly is eyeing. The Queen City needs a Queen. All hail Her Honor.
