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.

'Divide and Conquer' Vs. 'Consolidate and Strengthen'

Jun 9 2014 1:14pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

"Divide and conquer" is a venerable political adage. The Obama administration has taken a different, quite novel course in dealing with rivals: "consolidate and strengthen." Washington has performed this feat in a manner that quickly has borne fruit. How and with what implications? The blockbuster energy deal between Russia and China inked last week received headline attention. Deservedly so. For it solidifies in tangible f ...

Democrats On Benghazi Panel See Role As Defensive

Jun 2 2014 7:46am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

WASHINGTON (AP) — The five Democrats on the House Select Committee on Benghazi are being counted on to defend the Obama administration's record as November's elections creep closer. All five voted against the special investigation and most have described it as a political stunt and waste of time.
