Hillary Clinton is committed to remaining U.S. secretary of state through Barack Obama’s first term. What will she want then? The answer seems to be “spare time”. But maybe just a little.
Hillary’s future has long been the subject of swirling speculation. Would she run for president against Obama in 2012? Join his ticket as the vice presidential nominee? Replace Bob Gates at the Pentagon?
The only sure bet is that she’s content to remain in the Obama administration through 2012.
“I have committed to President Obama that I will stay with him this first term and I intend to do so,” Hillary tells NBC’s Today show.
Asked specifically about a second term at State: “That is not something that I’m in any way committing to or even thinking about.”
