Hillary Clinton admitted today she’s “thinking about running” for president, and the release of her new memoir on June 10, I suspect, will only fan the speculation flames even more:

Hillary Rodham Clinton's new book on her time as President Barack Obama's secretary of state will be released on June 10, her publisher says.

Publisher Simon & Schuster said Wednesday that Clinton would share "candid reflections about key moments during her time as Secretary of State as well as her thoughts about how to navigate the challenges of the 21st century." The book's title and jacket design have not yet been released; the publishing date was released by the publisher on a website for the book: http://www.hillaryclintonmemoir.com/

Clinton's book has been widely anticipated as she considers another presidential campaign in 2016. The former first lady and New York senator is already a best-selling author: Her 2003 memoir, "Living History," sold more than 1 million copies.

Clinton has been traveling the country giving paid speeches to industry organizations and appearing before a variety of constituency groups that comprise the Democratic party. During a speech in San Francisco on Tuesday, Clinton said she was seriously considering a presidential bid and all it would entail.

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer has famously asked Fox News viewers to come up with a single Hillary Clinton accomplishment during her tenure as Secretary of State. Question: Can you think of one? (For what it’s worth, DNC attendees were recently asked that very question, and came up remarkably short). Put differently, the book will give her an opportunity to tout her accomplishments as a cabinet secretary -- and perhaps clear up some questions that need answering -- before she runs for president.

We’ll see if she actually answers any of them.
