Hillary Clinton's reins are about to pass to John Kerry, who the Senate has approved as the new secretary of State. What will Hillary Clinton do now?
In an interview taped for National Public Radio, Clinton was asked what questions she needs to answer for herself as she decides whether to run for president.
"I'm not even posing those questions. I am really looking forward to stepping off the fast track that I've been on. I've been out of politics as Secretary of State. I don't see myself getting back into politics," she said, according to an excerpt of the interview.
Whether this is her last word on the subject is unknown. She will face strong pressure from Democrats to join the field of contenders. Clinton will step down this week, following Senate confirmation Tuesday of Massachusetts Democratic Senator John Kerry as her successor.
Those close to Clinton are eager for her to announce a 2016 run, so much so that a group has already formed a new super PAC and registered with the Federal Election Commission on Friday, called "Ready for Hillary."
