Hillary Clinton says she won't serve eight years
Breitbart ^ | January 28,2010 | afp

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said she would not serve a full eight years if President Barack Obama wins another term, hoping eventually to retire to writing and teaching. Clinton, who has spent two decades in the national spotlight and narrowly lost her own bid to be president in 2008, said she enjoyed her job as the top US diplomat but found it physically grueling.

Asked by talk-show host Tavis Smiley if she would serve eight years, she replied: "No, I really can't."

"The whole eight -- that would be very challenging," she said in the interview broadcast Wednesday on public television.

"It's a 24-7 job and I think at some point, I will be very happy to pass it on to someone else," Clinton said.

Clinton repeated that she would not run again for president, saying she wanted a private life after a career in which she has served as first lady and a US senator.

Wow! Not that this is a surprise but she will run for President in 2012. 2012 is going to be a showdown for who will ultimately be the President. I think it will be bloodier than 2008. Both in Republican and Democratic Parties but it will be exciting to watch.

At a minimum, she is cutting her losses.

Whatever one thinks about either of the Clintons, they have pretty keenly honed survival instincts. She is getting the hell away from this Hindenburg gasbag.

LOL!! I always smile when I remember that there is no statute of limitations on homicide. That, and remembering what the Bible says, "...be sure your sin will find you out."

Hillary was oddly not in attendance for the State Of The Union this evening. The timing of all of this isn’t by accident. She’s running in 2012. She knows it. Obama knows it and now we know it. I’ll be surprised if Hillary is still SOS 6 months from now.

2012 is going to be a showdown for who will ultimately be the President.

It'll be Mayan, man. The Clinton's have seen the worm turn in Mass. (and NJ and VA) and figure the cost of stealing the election for Hillary in light of Zero's impending trainwreck performance would be too high.

She'll have look elsewhere, unless, the 'people' demand she make the sacrafice for the good of the country and then, aw shucks, she'll throw in her garter, you know, for the good of the country, of course.

The judge will give her five, plus time off for good behavior.

It would be hilarious if the Dems have a fight for the nomination in 2012 assuming Obama doesn't voluntarily step out of embarrassment and shame.

well good riddance, but think of the self-contradiction, unless she only wanted to be POTUS for one term (which is hard to believe)

so she wanted voters to believe that she could handle the Presidency for two terms, but she’s over her head as Secretary of State?????

that is quite “interesting” to say the least......

I thought she would too; but after seeing pictures of how tired she looks; she may not. Although Obama doesn’t realize it; the POTUS job is 24/7 too.

I’m just thinking that BO has not made being Sec. of State a gratifying position for Hillary. He’s kept her in the shadows. She must be a very frustrated woman.
