WaPo: Cohen ‘Probably Will Be Nominated’ For Canada Ambassador

Cohen to Canada? 

According to the Washington Post, Comcast Executive David L. Cohen “probably will be nominated as U.S. ambassador to Canada.”

The report from the Washington Post notes that Cohen hosted Joe Biden’s first fundraising event as a presidential candidate. That fundraising event took place in Mt. Airy in 2019.  

This isn’t the first report to mention the Pennsylvania political powerbroker as a potential ambassador. 

Politico reported in late November that Cohen was believed to be the frontrunner for U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, however that same report mentioned that a friend of Cohen’s said that he is interested in the ambassadorship or being the secretary of Commerce. 

Cohen never served in office, but has played an influential role in politics in the Keystone State for decades. 

He served as the Chief of Staff under then-Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell before becoming an executive at Comcast. He’s also served as Chairman of the Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania and its Executive Committee for over a decade.

  1. I had the pleasure of working with David when he was Mayor Rendell’s Chief of Staff. His energy, intellect, ethics, determination, inclusiveness and generosity are unmatched. He is as responsible for Philadelpiha’s operational and financial recovery during the 1990s as anyone. He is a great choice and will be a first class representative for America.

    1. “Mr. White” – How much taxpayer money did Cohen help secure to build their new HQ? Then he turned around and get a job with them. Shady. Also, how much Comcast money did Cohen hand out to a charity you are involved with? That’s usually what buys a statement like that.

    1. People like Cohen about as much as they like Ted Cruz. They are both pompous and arrogant. So, actually, pretty similar in that sense.
