Hillary Clinton: "I Am Thinking About" Running for President

Posted: Apr 09, 2014 11:00 AM

Not an official announcement by any means, but former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said today during a post-speech question and answer session that she is "thinking about" running for president in 2016. She declined to give a definite yes or no when asked, and joked that she was there for "marketing advice."

"I am obviously flattered and deeply honored to have people ask me and encourage me, and I am thinking about it, but I am going to continue to think about it for a while."

Clinton is considered by many to be the front-runner for the Democratic nominee, despite the fact that she has not actually entered the race.

Concerns about Clinton's health, however, have some questioning whether or not she is physically capable of handling the grueling campaign schedule. In late 2012, Clinton was briefly hospitalized for a blood clot on her brain.

Regardless of health or other factors, Clinton made it clear that an announcement about her campaign won't be coming for a long time.
