Christie Hefner Resigns from Playboy and hints she may be part of Obama's Cabinet.

Will Christie Hefner be America's first Secretary of Centerfolds? The soon-to-be-former Playboy Enterprises CEO gave an interview to CNBC this morning in which she hinted that she may be angling for a role in the Obama Administration.

"Like many Americans, I've been struck by the call to service that was the hallmark of the campaign, and I was an early supporter of Senator Obama, now President-Elect Obama, and I believe deeply in what he wants to do for our country," she told Larry Kudlow and Erin Burnett. "I'll be looking for ways in which I can serve to be helpful in that regard."

Hefner also denied that the timing of her departure has anything to do with Playboy's struggles. "Quite the opposite. I wouldn't be able to step down if the company weren't in such strong shape."

I met Christie Hefner not long after she took over the helm at Playboy almost 30 years ago.

I was working at the Graduate School of Business at the University of Chicago. A student group invited Christie to speak. She was dynamite!

A few female students were upset that the student group invited her, but after Christie spoke, everyone knew what a bright young woman she was.

President-elect Barack Obama would do well to appoint her to his Administration.
