Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dismissed speculation she was interested in being named to the U.S. Supreme Court, saying intended to keep her current position in the Obama administration.
Clinton had been mentioned as a possible replacement for Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who has announced his retirement from the high court.
When asked on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program aired on Sunday if she would continue serving as Secretary of State for the remainder of the Obama administration’s first term in office, Clinton replied, “I intend to … I think so.”
“I do not and never have wanted to be a judge,” Clinton added.
