The end of 2013 is upon us which means Barbara Walters is out with her 'Most Fascinating People' list. Who's at the top? None other than 'what difference does it make' Hillary Clinton.

Walters' choice of Hillary Clinton as the Most Fascinating Person of 2013 for Walters' last installment of "The 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year" is a poignant one. When the ABC News annual special debuted 20 years ago in 1993, then-first lady Hillary Clinton was the first person to top Walters' list.

Today, for the first time in decades, neither Hillary Clinton nor her husband, former President Bill Clinton, who also appeared on the top of Walters' list twice, are in public office, which the former secretary of state called a "relief."

"I knew that I wanted to get off this high wire that I had been on for so long," she said. "To spend time just doing things that give us a lot of joy, playing with our dogs, going to movies, just hanging out."

As for what Bill Clinton thinks about his wife making another presidential run, Clinton said, "He wants me to do what I think is right."

Is Hillary Clinton really the most fascinating person of 2016? Nope. This is simply the media saying, "Run Hillary, run."
