Hillary Clinton: No means no

The Irish dudes are all “whatever,” but Hill says she's not running. (ap)

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Belfast today getting the feuding Irish sorted. Before she got there, Clinton sat for an interview with Anne Curry of NBC News, where she (maybe) cleared up once and for all any speculation about her future political plans.

“Will you ever run for president again? Yes or no,” Curry asked.

“No,” replied Clinton.

“No?” Curry followed up.

“No. No,” Clinton emphasized. “I mean, this is a great job. It is a 24/7 job. And I'm looking forward to retirement at some point.”

Clinton also scoffed at suggestions she has been marginalized in the men's club atmosphere of the Obama administration, saying she doesn't always need to be the center of attenion.

“Maybe there is some misunderstanding which needs to be clarified,” Clinton said. “I believe in delegating power. You know, I am not one of these people who feel's like I have to have my face in the front of the newspaper or on the TV every moment of the day.”
