Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday she wanted to see a female US president during her lifetime -- but insisted she was ready to "get off the high wire" of top-level politics.
"I hope so. I really want to see that in my lifetime," Clinton said during a town hall meeting at a girls school in India's Kolkata, when asked about the prospects of a woman taking America's top job for the first time.
Clinton praised India's "great display of women empowerment" due to the prominent role played by female politicians over the years but said that in the US "we still have a pretty hard glass ceiling that has not been broken at the presidential level."
The former First Lady and New York senator, who was beaten by President Barack Obama for the 2008 Democratic nomination, reiterated that she was not interested in another shot in 2016.
"I have been active in high-level politics for last 20 years. I feel it's time for me to get off the high wire," she said. "I would like to come to India and wander without streets being closed and a lot of security."

So she’s going to support a Sarah Palin candidacy, huh?
Well, if my vote has anything to do with it, she won’t ever be president.
When Obama becomes Radioactive, he will be blamed and Hillary will step in to “fix things” but will just continue things as usual...
And I’m Mr.Greenjeans.
We need to divide the world up into sections, one for each hyphenated-class of people we can think of, and herd everyone into their section and lock them in.
Then the white female lesbian whatevers have have their own President, as can everyone else.
If she can get the natural born requirement dropped, I think Hillary would go all out for Huma.
Considering how she’s let herself go, I just might believe her. Poor old Bill can’t be happy that she’s heading home.
Same here. What a coincidence, Hillary—we don’t want you to be President either.
Of course not, she wants a female president, not whatever she is. Since we don't know what Hitlery is, I'm glad she's sitting this one out.
Doncha' just love libtards? "wants female president" . . . not "the best qualified president" . . . male or female.
Would this unprosecuted felon want Michelle Bachmann or Congoleesa Rice to be president? Huh? They're "females", aren't they?
Of course not. She's a hypocrite! But you're right . . . you can't make this stuff up!
Maybe she ain't as stupid as I thought. . . . . . .
Wake up Voter (slap slap) Never mind I had a bad moment.
She is still dumber than dirt. . . .
Did you see the caption Drudge originally put on that picture? “Hillary Au Naturale.” I had a few immediate responses to that: (1) RRRRRAAAAALLLLLPPPPPHHHHH!; (2) Those words must never be used in the same phrase or sentence EVER AGAIN; (3) I don’t have enough mental bleach to erase that image from my mind; and (4) RRRRRAAAAALLLLLPPPPPHHHHH!
In lieu of a female candidate Hillary would be willing step in.
Wow! My sentiments exactly.
Her statement kind of exposes the left’s racist policies. We should vote for a candidate based on qualifications, not on male/female persuasion.
Which leads me to believe the same sentiment would be “I hope I see a...African...Chinese...Indian...Malaysian...
and so we see the left’s voting requirements.
