Hillary Clinton hopes to see female US president in her lifetime, but says she won't run
KOLKATA, India (AP) ' U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has no desire to make for another run for the highest office in the land but hopes to see a female U.S. president in her lifetime.
Politely turning aside questions about her political intentions at a town hall event in Kolkata, Clinton said Monday she really wanted to see "that final glass ceiling" broken.
She noted, though, that the American political process is difficult and heavily dependent on fund raising, which makes it hard for any candidate to succeed.
Still, she said she thinks there will be an election that will elect a woman president.
As for herself, she says she is done with the political highwire. She says she just wants to "get back to taking some deep breaths."
