Hillary Clinton: I ‘Don’t Believe’ I’ll Run in 2016
Newsmax ^ | 12/12/2012 | By Newsmax Wires

Posted on 12/12/2012 2:07:03 PM PST by Responsibility2nd

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says she doesn’t plan to run for president in 2016, but she leaves open the opportunity.

In an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters set to air Wednesday night, Clinton explains, “I’ve said I really don’t believe that that’s something I will do again. I am so grateful I had the experience of doing it before. I think there are lots of ways to serve, so I’ll continue to serve,” The Hill reports.

Obama will have the country so messed up by then even Hlllary won’t be able to straighten it out (plus she’s right in league with his leftist socialist programs anyway).

The real reason she may not want to run in 2016: Bill Clinton...they have lived apart for YEARS and she does not want to have him back in her house which he would demand if she were to take hold of the White house...Some things are just not worth it and he’s ONE of them!

If this criminal finally does decide to run, she’ll conveniently say “I don’t recall” this statement. h clintoon and “her” husband should be in prison.

I love how these career politicians talk about how they have “served” as if they are doing us all a huge favor through some great sacrifice. All they are doing is enriching their bank accounts and lusting after power. They don’t care one bit about real Americans. Just once I’d like to hear a reporter explain how they have “served.”

She is a compulsive liar like most Democrats. Don’t pay attention to her.

Prediction: It will be Andrew Cuomo, architect of the disastrous National Homeownership Strategy.

When a liar says “I’m lying”, and everything she says is a lie, is she still lying or telling the truth?

She was runover in the primaries by O and I don’t think she wants a repeat.

She has turned into an old lady over the last four years and the prospect of being trapped in the White House is probably pretty frightening.

Her record as Secretary of State is horrible. She and the big O have put us on a possible road to a third world war.

Just like 'I don't intend to...'

I think the reason she's leaving her current office is to go around making a bunch of speeches to raise money for the 2016 run (people are already saying it's her turn), and getting some plastic surgery.

Because the way she looks now, there's no way she could be elected. Stay out of the spotlight for a little while, come back looking great = President Hillary.

If she were going to run, wouldn't she be taking better care of herself?

She's really let herself go lately -- and it will be hard to get herself back together.

She may have gotten to like being messy, and there are enough photos of dowdy Hillary circulating to embarass any Clinton presidential race.

Hitlery’s ego and lust for power have been tamed?? Bull pucky! The power elite who choose and appoint the president must have informed hitlery that they have other plans. Who will they choose? Or will they even bother going through another sham process in 2016.

I dunno. I think she could win a general, but may not be able to survive the primaries. Maybe step in at the last minute in a brokered convention. Does anybody really think Biden will be the nominee?

Personally, I do not think she (HC) wants to run again, nor does she have the energy to campaign for a couple years. But she possibly would run for one term while Michelle 0bama could serve a couple years in the Senate for IL then make her own run for the WH. I see this is as greater possibility with the M0 element, as some FReeper posed a week or two ago.

I agree. She has been haphazard about her appearance. I think that she would make an effort to look better, if she was really planning to run.

NOT good news. HER LIPS WERE MOVING. Means she’s a lying witch, and trying the old “BEG ME” bit. “I’ll run if you really want me to”, and then the Leftists, the Liberals all wet their britches begging her to run, and then she says “awwwwww isn’t that sweet, well OK if you insist”.

You have to remember this woman psychologically is really about where she was in high school. She may be more experienced due her World travels, and her involvement in politics, but her tactics are right out of Sophomore year at high school.

The powers that be have decreed Jeb Bush v. Hillary in 2016.

And that Hillary will win in a squeaker.

That is why it is imperative to form a third party. I’d like to see Palin/West as the ticket.

That would really throw a wrench into the kabuki theater the Democans are planning.

She will be the next US Supreme Court nominee.

The Republican catamites will approve her with vague murmurs of discontent, and she will emerge as the next US Supreme Court Justice, with years of sly evildoing ahead of her.

I actually believe her. I really don't think she wants to run. I think she'd rather retire and shack up with her live-in girlfriend and grow old. It's Bill that wants her to run. In the book "The Amateur", it was made pretty clear that Bill was pushing her the last time around - and this time too. It's Bill who wants back into the White House, and I think she realizes this and doesn't want to give him a "third" term.
