She talked about running in the wide-ranging interview with Diane Sawyer, but would not say for certain.
“I don’t want to take anything for granted if I decide to do it,” Clinton said. She called it a “really personal decision.”
Clinton did address some of the issues that will undoubtedly greet her on the campaign trail if she does make a run.
