Hillary Clinton Says “No” To A Second Term

It’s a good thing Amy Poehler left “Saturday Night Live,” because Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is has confirmed she’s leaving politics in 2012. Regardless of whether President Obama is elected for a second term, Clinton said she’ll be moving onto things. Despite rumors that she might lead the Defense Department or even run for President in the future, Clinton is vehement about blowing this popsicle stand. “You know, I had a wonderful experience running … but I’m going to be, you know, moving on,” Clinton said. “I am doing what I want to do right now and I have no intention or any idea even of running again. I’m going to do the best I can at this job for the next two years.”

Honestly, this is disappointing news: Hillary Clinton has been one of the most vocal proponents of women’s rights, especially in the developing world, that I have ever seen. I hope she uses her immense influence and experience to continue those good works. [New York Daily News]
