WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton says she will decide whether to run for president again "when it feels right for me to decide." She says potential Democratic rivals are free to choose what they would like to do.
The former Secretary of State says in an interview with ABC News that she is focused on promoting her new book and helping fellow Democrats in the midterm elections in the fall.
She says she will be "on the way to making a decision" by the end of 2014.
“Certainly not before then,” Clinton said. “I just want to kind of get through this year, travel around the country, sign books, help in the midterm elections in the fall, and then take a deep breath and kind of go through my pluses and minuses about what I will – and will not – be thinking about as I make the decision.”
Clinton says other Democrats are free to do whatever they would choose to do.
Asked whether she will testify before a select congressional committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, Clinton says that will be up to the people running the hearing.
“We’ll see what they decide to do, how they conduct themselves, whether or not this is, you know, one more travesty about the loss of four Americans, or whether this is, in the best tradition of the Congress, an effort to figure out how – what we can do better," she said.
