Clinton Says She Won’t Run for President Again
Posted on Oct 13, 2009
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a strong run for the White House in 2008, but she won’t be doing that again and quite likes the job she has now—or so she said in an interview with NBC on Monday. It’s all up to Chelsea now. —KA
“This is a great job,” Clinton said in the interview broadcast Monday. “It is a 24-7 job. And I am looking forward to retirement at some point.”
After the 2008 elections, Clinton accepted Obama’s offer to serve as his top diplomat.
Unless she challenged President Obama in the 2012 Democratic presidential primary, Clinton would have to wait until 2016 to run again if she changed her mind. She turns 62 on October 26.
