WASHINGTON: Hillary Clinton won’t make her intentions known about a possible White House before year’s end, she said in an interview broadcast Sunday.
“I will be on the way to making a decision by the end of the year,” she said in a taped interview with ABC television. “Certainly not before then.”
Clinton’s remark came as she embarks on a sweeping book tour for her latest memoir “Hard Choices.”
“I just want to kind of get through this year, travel around the country, sign books, help in the midterm elections in the fall, and then take a deep breath and kind of go through my pluses and minuses about what I will — and will not — be thinking about as I make the decision,” she said.
Her non-committal remarks notwithstanding, many see Clinton’s book tour launch this week as an unofficial start to her expected presidential run. Her book, scheduled for publication on June 10, is widely seen as a chance for her to re-craft and fine-tune her image ahead of a 2016 campaign.
Clinton, 66, who lost to President Barack Obama in their 2008 battle for the Democratic presidential nomination, is mulling a second White House run.
As has been her style, Clinton spoke opaquely about her political plans, careful not to rule out, or rule in, a future presidential bid.
