Hillary Rodham Clinton says she is “not inclined” to run for president in 2016

Jan 29 2013, 2:52pm CST | by

Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is stepping down as the U.S. Secretary of State on Friday, said she is not inclined to run for president in 2016. Clinton said she plans to write her memoir and catch up on sleep.

 

WASHINGTON, DC – When Hillary Rodham Clinton officially says farewell to her post as U.S. Secretary of State on Friday, she said her immediate plans were catching up on 20 years of sleep deprivation.

Clinton, who made the comment on Tuesday, was responding to a question whether she had any plans to run for the Oval Office in 2016. Saying that she's “not inclined” to seek the office at this time; however, does not permanently close the door to that possibility.

Clinton, who lost the Democratic nomination for president to Barack Obama in 2008, said during a question-and-answer session with students at the Newseum, that she plans to write a memoir and pursue her favorite causes, such as advocating for more women playing an increased role in the nation’s politics.

Clinton has supporters who would be glad to see her run. On Friday, a super PAC that would support Clinton for president in 2016, filed papers and registered with the Federal Election Commission. Clinton is not associated with the PAC.

WASHINGTON -- After months of criticism from former advisers and members of the media for not acting sooner to prevent the Islamic State's rise in Syria by arming non-extremist Syrian rebels, the White House seemed at least partially vindicated by a New York Times report last week describing how President Barack Obama and his advisers were reluctant to arm the rebels through a covert CIA program because the agency had told them ...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is criticizing President Barack Obama for leaning toward, then deciding against military action against Syria for its use of chemical weapons. "By failing to respond, it sent the wrong message to the world," Panetta says in a new book in which he reveals his differences with the president over the decision to withdraw completely from Iraq in 2011. In August 2012, Obama said the U.S. would reconsider its opposition to milita ...

Joe Biden said the job of being vice president is "a bitch," at which point he cracked opened a beer, donned a pair of aviators, and walked away while humming “Bang The Drum All Day.” The unemployment rate fell to 5.9 percent because Americans scurried back to work after John Boehner scolded them for being lazy. And David Perdue bluntly said he "spent most of my career" outsourci ...

ATLANTA (AP) — Almost two years after his Election Day drubbing, Mitt Romney is the Republican man in demand. The twice-defeated White House contender is campaigning across seven states this week, covering nearly 6,000 miles in five days to raise money and energy for Republican midterm candidates from Georgia to Colorado. Romney has repeatedly insisted he's not running for president again, and his closest aides laugh off a possible 2016 bid. But top GOP strategists and donors suggest hi ...

Politico Staffers Begin Circling Wagons to Ensure Hillary's Not Vetted

Sep 24 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Big Government

Brace yourselves. It looks as though it's going to be 2008 and 2012 all over again -- where a 50 year-old GOP haircut and a 35 year-old GOP rock are big news but Hillary will get a sweet mainstream media pass when it comes to vetting her past and formative years. Worse, any attempt by New Media to do the vetting the MSM won't will be met with equal parts wrist-flicking and mockery. Oh, and once again, Politico will lead the Democratic defense. The tweets belo ...
