Hillary Clinton won't run this year, she won't be a VP nominee this year, and she isn't running for president in 2016. In a flat "no" denial in a Today show interview, the Secretary of State told Savannah Guthrie "I'm very privileged to have the opportunities to serve my country. I'm very old-fashioned. I feel like I've made my contribution, I've done the best I can, but now I want to try some other things." And, just like her Today show admission last week that being this year's vice presidential nominee was not "even in the realm of possibility," her latest presidential denial didn't feel like a "we'll see" answer at all. So maybe there won't be an inevitable "Hillary in 2016" campaign. The presidential talk is at 6:22 in the video below.
