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.
