When asked about a 2016 presidential bid, Clinton says definitively, "I have ruled it out." "It's important for me to step off this incredibly high wire I've been on," she says, "to take stock of the rest of my life." Then she adds the cryptic remark, "I will always want to be in service to my country." So either she's signaling that she's open to being drafted into the presidential race in four years, or she's planning to volunteer at a soup kitchen during her retirement.
Clinton is more forthcoming about how close she and President Obama have become over the past four years. The two have started exchanging personal, yet surprisingly mundane gifts (she got a personalized iPad cover, he got an espresso machine), and the paper notes that at a service honoring those killed in Libya, Clinton held the president's hand after his remarks, and he put his arm around her waist as they left the podium. "I know probably better than anyone … the difficult issues and hard questions he has to grapple with," says Clinton. ...Daily Intel
