Hillary Clinton wants off the merry-go-round
By: Jennifer Epstein July 15, 2011 07:30 AM EDT
Shes in good health from yoga and exercise, but Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says shes tired by the merry-go-round of public life and ready to get off it for good at the end of President Barack Obamas first term.
I think that I am a pretty normal, average person, despite all of the hype, Clinton said in an interview with the BBC conducted Thursday. And I am very interested in spending time with my friends and my family and not being on the merry-go-round all the time.
That, she said, is why she plans to move on and return to private life at the end of what will be a very intense period of activity and work in the next 18 months.
Clinton has made similar comments in several interviews this year, but this time they were unprompted, coming in response to a question about what the general public might not know about her.
Clinton said she never wakes up too tired to go to work, but instead says to herself, Im tired so I better get up and get going.
Every day is fascinating to me because I really dont know whats going to happen during the day, she said. I am very aware of how much energy this takes because, clearly, its a nonstop marathon. But let me knock on wood here, I have been lucky with health, stamina, and all that goes with it.
Friends, she said, call and email her saying, Oh, my gosh, I saw you on television. You looked so tired. Which I send back saying, Gee, thanks a lot.

Insert circus reference involving pachyderms.
Uh-huh. And in related news, bears have announced they will no longer s**t in the woods.
Rats and sinking ships.
Sorry, Hilly....go explain that to the ghost of Vince Foster.
May it be on 0bama.
It is not a merry-go-round, it is a giant toilet being flushed.
The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down.................Looney Tunes Theme Song............
And you can bet Bill wasn’t happy when he heard this.
Nah, you’re not an average person. Average middle age women don’t have pretty young women spending the night with them. There will come a time when men from your SS detail from the POTUS days release what they observed about your day to day activities, they you’ll be better known as anything but average: aberrant yes, average no.
I believe this is more BS from the heifer, but if it is true , it is the first smart thing she has said in the last 20 years.
This is soooooo what I was thinking of posting the minute I read that line, too!
Really??? NORMAL / AVERAGE / PERSON /...these words have NOTHING to do with you, my dear.
This is Hillary-speak for ‘I am running for president’.
Obviously she has no idea what normal is.
It could be worse; at least they didn’t say, “...thanks to the advice of Moosechelle Obama.”
We’re supposed to believe she wants off the merry go round of public life? Yet this is the same woman who wanted to be president, which would have been a much bigger pressure cooker if she had succeeded and gotten elected.
Bill said that Hillary wants to be a grandmother more than she ever wanted to be president. Who knows, maybe Grandma Hillary will indeed be gone from public life.
And what happened? Not only did we get "just as bad" - we got "much worse."
Hillary does yoga? Seriously?
