Clinton: Yes, there will be a woman prez


Even in New Dehli, India, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton couldn’t avoid questions about whether she’ll run for president again. During the town hall meeting today, Clinton said she’s hopeful that she will see a woman president in her lifetime, but she insists it won’t be her.

I think that there will be an election that will elect a woman, but I think our political system is about the most difficult to navigate for men and women, but particularly for women. So we’re going to keep trying to encourage that final glass ceiling to be broken.

When pressed about whether she’ll be the one to break the highest glass ceiling in 2016, she said:

I’m very flattered, but I feel like it’s time for me to kind of step off the high wire. I’ve been involved at the highest levels of American politics for 20 years now.

Just because she’s adamant about taking a break from politics doesn’t mean everyone else has to stop dreaming.  

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have both rooted for Clinton to run in 2016. The tumblr “Texts from Hillary” gave us a glimpse of what she’d look like as commander in chief. And even her husband, former President Bill Clinton, says he doesn’t know what she will finally decide to do, but says he will support her either way.
