BERLIN (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton has told a German magazine that she will work to make sure the United States is led by a woman — even if it's not her.

Clinton told weekly Stern that the U.S. lags behind countries such as Germany, Chile and Brazil because it's never had a woman as head of state or government.

In excerpts published Monday, Clinton is quoted as saying that she "will do everything I can to make that happen."

But she adds that "I don't know if that means I will be the person to make it happen. I just have to factor that into my decision making."

The former secretary of state hasn't yet announced whether she will run for president in 2016.
