Really, seriously, Clinton is done with government

By Elise Labott

While much of the country is looking ahead to the next election, Hillary Clinton said she is squeezing every last moment out of her current job.

As secretary of state, Clinton isn't allowed to campaign or participate in domestic politics.

"It is a little odd for me to be totally out of an election season," the former presidential candidate and senator admitted to State Department employees Thursday during a town hall meeting.

Clinton said she hasn't even watched any of the many Republican presidential debates so far.

Foreign service officers are also expected to remain politically neutral in conducting their jobs, but there were clearly a few Clinton fans in the room. One woman asked Clinton whether she could be persuaded to stay as secretary of state or even run for vice president, reflecting rumors that Joe Biden might step down and President Barack Obama would ask Clinton to join the ticket for his re-election bid.

Clinton wouldn't bite, saying Biden "does an excellent job" and is a "huge advocate and supporter" for the State Department and its sister organization, the U.S. Agency for International Development.

The secretary of state said, as she has many times before, that she's done with government after this presidential term.

"I have made it clear that I will certainly stay on until the president nominates someone and that transition can occur," she said. "But I think after 20 years, and it will be 20 years, of being on the high wire of American politics and all of the challenges that come with that, it would be probably a good idea to just find out how tired I am. Everyone always says that when they leave these jobs."

Elections, she said, "I'm sure will suck up a lot of the attention from following areas that we think are so important." She cited resolving longstanding conflicts, helping bring people around the world out of poverty and trying to build up America's reputation as some of the issues she wants to continue to advance before she leaves office.

There is an upside to American being distracted by the election, Clinton pointed out: "The good news is maybe we could even get more done if they are not paying attention."

Which is why Clinton said she is looking forward to her last year in office and doesn't want to divert attention from the important work of U.S. foreign policy by even thinking about her next move.

Not even a casual thought?

"From my perspective, I will just work as hard as I can until the last minute I have the honor of being secretary, and certainly do everything no matter what I do, which I have no idea what it will be, to support all of you"

Oh, she probably has some idea.

Do you have any ideas for Clinton's next move? Weigh in below in our comment section.

    Bea...who are you talking to? didn't you read marilee's comment#75, a compendium of the Clinton's record, or perhaps my retort #100 vs. #99 ? Ignore the foul mouthed cretins, spewing their obscenities, hiding in anonimity behind their keyboards, they're just bratty kids on a computer somewhere! I agree with you Hillary will make a fine Grandmother...Let's watch and see, but the American People won't forget what the Clintons are...shameless Con-Artists in the White House, the Senate, and as Secretary of State, non deserving of trust or respect...

    I hope that after some time to rest Hillary reconsiders getting back into politics and runs for president in 2016. I can't think of one candidate of either party who would have her level of experience: 8 years in the WH, 8 years in the senate and 4 years as SOS.

    Kevin...I'll take that as a compliment, thankyou...the Clinton legacy of lies and deceit will never be forgotten... Decent citizens were outraged and angered by the way they betrayed the public's trust...you have to resort to name calling and sarcasm... Attempting to discredit the truth as ranting and raving by implied association, as most liberals do when the facts don't suit their misguided beliefs... You are a blind man being lead by the blind, you refuse to see the truth...The politically correct lib-view of "how it should be" versus "how it is" demands you dispute reality...You could lose that warm, fuzzy viewpoint of life with a good dose of truth, but it'll make you burn with rage too...Oh...we can't have that, can we ?...It's meltdown time !...Burn Baby Burn !!!

    Mrs. Clinton has served The American People well...I still think she would have made an EXCELLENT president and hope that perhaps in the future she will be able to take on that role. That being said the work she has done as Secretary of State has been nothing short of magnificent. She was able to bring the world's opinion of America back to the positive side, sorry Mr. Obama, it really was Mrs. Clinton who did that.

    Whatever the future holds for her, I hope it will be her joy and peace of mind.

    Will some of you people who are hillary cheerleaders please share with me what her accomplishments have been as Sec. of State? Our standing in the middle east in at the lowest it has evern been. Iran is on the verge of getting the bomb. China is negotiating all over the world to secure long term oil supplies. If her husband hadn't been President of the United States you would have never heard of her. With next to no relevant experience she is considered a viable Presidential candidate. How does first lady translate into relevant experience?

    When Hillary was running for Senator here in NYS she promised one hundred thousand jobs for UpState New York voters. Why is it that politicians always promise jobs and the public knows they are lying through their teeth. Iguess it becomes a habit after awhile.

    I was happy when Obama won the democratic primary – but was so impressed by Hillary Clinton before election 08 and her great work the last 3 years. I think she is very competent and would be a great president if thats possible in 2016. Maby its better for her now to relax some, and then wait after senate-congress election in 2014 before she starts too campaign ;) Thats a dream – first female president – and one of the most experience and with now good jugdment!

      ANY man who uses this word when speaking of ANY woman is an ignorant jerk. Obviously your 3:45am response to this article about a former First Lady is because you're up early for work...yeh, right or just getting home from a night on the town. Whatever your story, there is no excuse for using this disgusting and derogatory reference to speak of a woman.

      Hilary Clinton is certainly the most accomplished woman in politics and despite her party affiliation, I'd have voted for her if she'd run in 2008. The fact that BO appointed her to this position only proves that he is fearful of her running against him and I've no doubt that this was his calculation when he appointed her – he wanted her out of Washington and running herself ragged trying to put out fires all over the globe. BOs a loser for sure but a jerk like you requires a whole new word to define your character. Go back to your cave you moron – you're comments are not welcome here.

    I think that Hillary has plans to join Bill in the good work that he is doing. He has joined Michelle Obama and Rachael Ray in the fight against childhood obesity and is working toward getting healthier foods into our school cafeterias. He is also working for the rights and needs of women and children globally. I've noticed that Hillary also mentions these things often, so I'm thinking that she will go to work in support of these goals.
    I wish them both the best – I've already donated to Clinton's cause.

      I disagree Villager.Yes, Clinton and McCain did very well and they won some big asttes.But, Obama has proven a point that should not be ignored. He won in asttes that I was sure that she would carry. Which is an interesting point. Alaska,Utah, North Dakota, Idaho~do you think large black populations? If you think back to when this all started~this was supposed to be a wrap for Team Billary. And it is not happening that way. She needs to be challenged and so does Obama. That way the national popoulation can see what they both are about politically.I did not think that he would take Calli or NY. I was hoping that something would change before the votes were casted. So those were not surprises to me at all. But in the big picture they are still having at it. The stump is on the way to my home state of Ohio. It is already hot here for both parties. CNN is sponsoring a national debate here. The govenor is a Billary man and has lead her to believe that he can work it out for her.But that is not how I see it. Obama '08 has been working it out all along. I suspect that it is going to be hot as hell here starting today.So cheer up. It is not over and the fat donkey ain't even cleared its vocal chords to sing!

    the past three years have not been easy, but the future is looking tougher , if things were to flash up in the mid east the position of the secretary of state would be load that only few could bear through the darts of all sides of global leaders. it would be a service to the country and not a position of the secretary of state. clinton has endured much as secretary of state and perhaps in a few years she will give us a glimps into what she endured when she releases a book.

      She has endured a hell of a lot just being connected to the sorriest President this country has ever had.

        You really should not advertise your rank in these idiotic posts you are posting. I prefer a 1st sergeant who I can lookup to. I would have difficulty obeying orders from someone with your attitude.

        @FIDEL1stSGT:You're wrong, Hillary is not connected to the sorriest President in the history of the US (GW Bush)

    If that will get her closer to the Presidency Do It Please Hillary. Maybe Obama will meet with a scuba diving accident as in maybe eaten by a shark while vacationing in his adopted birth state of Hawaii.

      Why are you so angry with Obama? What specifically has he done to rouse your deep hatred of him as a human being? I'm listening?

      Dana, maybe YOU will get eaten by a shark and then serious issues could be commented on by more intelligent people. Very patriotic of you to hope the American president dies. You must be a republican.

      Obama was handed this mess because G.W. chose not to do anything.

        A-pissin, she's from Illinois originally, and Field1st, get out a map and look up Africa: the consensus among people who graduated from high school is that its a continent.

      Hillary was born in Park Ridge, an upscale suburb of Chicago.

      You are the one who sound like a "hillbilly".

    Hillary is admired and respected only by the people who don't remember her saying she was shot at as she and Chelsea were getting off a plane... Even though none of the media seen any of that as they shot footage of them getting off the plane with NO gunshots.. Anyone remember that?

      Hillary did fly into a war zone. She didn't say or imply that bullets were actually being fired at her.

    I hope and pray that Hillary is being coy and will actually run for president in 2016. She is the greatest political leader of our time and would make a fantastic president. My heart is still broken over her 2008 loss. As far as the vice presidency is concerned, I think she would be better off distancing herself from the Obama administration.
