Hillary: No Politics; Just Writing, Speeches After State Department


Retiring Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has finally weighed in on what she will do with her time after she leaves the State Department.

Fans and detractors alike imagine she’ll run for president, but Hillary herself is now saying she’ll just retire to activism, writing, and speech making.

In a recent interview, Clinton claimed that she has “absolutely no plans to run” for president in 2016 and promised that she is “out of politics right now.”

Clinton said she planned to focus on speaking, writing, and working on issues to benefit women and girls. When pressed about why President Obama hasn’t appointed more women to his cabinet, Clinton waved off the criticism, saying, “What we have to do is take a look at the broad picture.”

The former Cabinet Secretary also said she may join her husband’s work at the Clinton Global Initiative.

As to a run for president in 2016, Clinton seemed to say she wasn’t on that track.
