Clinton: Whether To Run For President Is ‘A Really Personal Decision’


hillary-clintonFormer U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton went on the record in a prime-time television interview Monday night – talking about issues ranging from her health to Benghazi.

But as CBS 2’s Lou Young reported, the number one question Monday remained whether she will run for president again.

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.

On the subject of the deadly Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, Clinton pushed back against criticism that she missed warning signs for danger.

“I take responsibility, but I was not making security decisions. I think it would be a mistake for a Secretary of State to sit and say, ‘OK lets got through all 270 posts, and let me decide what should be done,'” she said. “What I do not appreciate is politicizing this at the expense of four dead Americans.”

  1. She had 50 yrs to decide- make the decision, run, and lose. She’s a liar like the rest of her family and democratic party.

  2. Of course it’s a PERSONAL decision!

    Its all about Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton. Its all about the office of President of the United States. Is all about what color the drapes in the Oval Office should be.

    Is not about what is best for the people of he United States. It never is with this woman.

    Why? Because its PERSONAL.

  3. Please please, Hillary! Please make a decision as fast as possible so we can move on with our lives! We, as a Nation, are waiting with baited breath!

  4. Well her husband was a very effective president as well as a pathological liar. I don’t see why she won’t be the same as well if elected. and that would probably be minus any scandals. The truth is that if you look at it objectively it’s definitely an improvement over the current situation where the president is not only a liar he’s also ineffective, incompetent, has no clue about foreign policy, and is generally dumb in all areas except for campaigning and running for office. On the other hand Hilary is extremely well educated and pretty smart

  5. I was about to get angry at Matzav for posting a picture of a woman, but then my wife told me that it looks like a picture of a man (no jokes!)… and you can’t argue with my wife!
