In an interview with Wolf Blitzer in Cairo, Secretary Hillary Clinton gives it to us straight:
Q- If the president is reelected, do you want to serve a second term as secretary of state?
Q- Would you like to serve as secretary of defense?
Q- Would you like to be vice president of the United States?
Q- Would you like to be president of the United States?
She gives some explanation about her reasons for not running for president again (which we expected), but I’m curious to hear more about her decisions not to take a second term (full interview will air on The Situation Room at 5 pm EST). I’ll admit I’m disappointed — she has been a really strong force as Secretary of State, but I’m also hopeful of what’s to come from her; it’s hard to believe this would be the end of her political career.
