With ex-Sen. Chris Dodd well into his third day of political retirement, there’s still no indication of what he’ll do next.

But at a recent dinner party at Rep. Rosa Delauro’s Washington home, Dodd confided to one guest about his dream job. “He told my wife that he wants to be a Peace Corps director in a small country,” recalled Toby Moffett, a former Connecticut Congressman, now lobbyist, who attended the party with his wife Marla.

Moffett said Dodd didn’t specify which country. No matter, because apparently Dodd’s wife, Jacki Clegg Dodd, didn’t look too thrilled with that idea.

Aside from the Peace Corps possibility, Moffett said, “I think he genuinely doesn’t know” what his next career move should be.
