Hillary Clinton says she will not run for President again, ruling out a run for the office in 2016.
In an interview with Ann Curry of NBC News, Clinton appeared ready to put to rest any more speculation over another run for the top job.
Curry asked: “Will you run for President again? Yes or no?”
“No,” Clinton said.
Curry tried again: “No?”
“No. No,” Clinton said.
Clinton will be 69 in 2016 and said she is “looking forward to retirement at some point.”
Other Presidential contenders have issued such definitive answers the past. Current President Barack Obama said he would not seek the Presidential nomination in 2008 but ran anyway.
So “no” does not always mean “no.” It just means “no, for now.”
