Clinton doesn't believe she'll run in 2016
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said again on Wednesday she has no plans to make a second bid to be America's first woman president.
"I've said I really don't believe that that's something I will do again," she told Ms Barbara Walters from ABC News. "I am so grateful I had the experience of doing it before," she added, alluding to her 2008 White House bid, in which she was defeated for the Democratic Party nomination by then senator Barack Obama.
In good diplomatic fashion Mrs Clinton, who remains the most popular figure in the Obama cabinet, said "all doors are open" in the future.
"I've been, as you know, at the highest levels of American and now international activities for 20 years, and I just thought it was time to take a step off - maybe do some reading and writing and speaking and teaching."
