Hillary Clinton leaves door open to second term as Secretary of State
"A lot of people have talked to me about staying," Clinton told the Wall Street Journal, though she said it was "unlikely" she'd agree.
In a wide-ranging interview with the Journal, during which Clinton accepted responsibility for the recent attacks in Libya, the popular Secretary of State reflected on the difficulties of the presidency.
"I know probably better than anyone...the difficult issues and hard questions he has to grapple with," she said, of Mr. Obama.
She insisted, not for the first time, that she has no interest in taking on those responsibilities in the future.
"I have ruled it out," Clinton told the Journal, of a presidential bid. "It's important for me to step off this incredibly high wire I've been on... to take stock of the rest of my life."
