Clinton (Again) Denies Presidential Ambitions

Published November 5, 2010

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is once again slapping down speculation that she harbors ambitions for another presidential run.

In New Zealand on Friday, Clinton told a pair of television interviewers that she won't run for president even in the aftermath of this week's congressional midterms that saw Republicans take control of the House and make big gains in the Senate. Some have suggested that Clinton should take advantage of President Barack Obama's unpopularity to make a new bid.

She said she is very happy doing what she is doing as America's top diplomat and replied "not me" when asked if she could be the first female president of the United States.
