Clinton insists she won’t run for President, but…

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama: Who, me run?

Hillary Clinton says she isn’t interested in running for President against Barack Obama or anyone else in 2012.

“I am not in any way interest in or pursuing anything in elected office,” Clinton said on Fox News Sunday. “I love what I’m doing (as Secretary of State). I can’t tell you what it’s like to represent the United States every day.”

But Clinton insiders tell Capitol Hill Blue that her denial is neither final or binding.

“She will keep her options open,” says one Clinton confident who asks not to be identified.

With dissatisfaction with President Barack Obama growing among Democrats and independents who now suffer buyer’s remorse for supporting and voting for America’s first African-American President, party insiders say the former First Lady is on the short lift of hopefuls who might be needed to replace the faltering President.

But, for the record, Clinton says she’s content to serve the President, not become one.

“I’ve said it over and over again,” Clinton told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace. “And I’m happy to say it on your show as well. I am committed to doing what I can to advance the security, the interests and values of the United States of America. I believe what I’m doing right now is in futherance of that. And I’m very proud and grateful to be doing it. ”

Others, however, point to statements by Barack Obama in early 2007 that he would not run for President and would finish out his first term as a Senator. Three months later, he announced his intention to run.

    Why are these two professional, collaborative crimpols laughing?

    Ain’t it great to have arisen to the highest positions in our land, both of them supported by a corrupt MSM and an endless supply of criminally disposed corporations and banks all hellbent on turning this once land of the free into their personal “banana republic”. There’s no place in hell, hot or deep enough for both of them and their aforementioned cotierie of corrupt ‘supporters’ seemingly perpetually indemnified by a “braindead” electorate. : |
