Hillary Clinton's been busy doing press for her new book, Hard Choices, but we know the one question that's on everyone's mind: What's going to happen in 2016? Last night Jon Stewart interviewed her on The Daily Show and furthered our quest for answers.

He started off by calling her book "an incredibly complex and well-reasoned eyewitness view" to Clinton's four-year term as the Secretary of State. And then he cut to the chase, saying, "And I think I speak for everybody when I say no one cares. They just want to know if you're running for president."

Clinton went with her usual response of laughter and witty banter, replying, "You know, Jon, I was going to make an announcement. But I saw—I mean, you kind of spoiled it for me. So I'm just going to have to reconsider where I go do it."

But then Stewart brilliantly pulled out a "career aptitude test." Here's their conversation:

Stewart: "Do you like commuting to work, or do you like a home office?"

Clinton: "I've spent so many years commuting I'd kind of prefer a home office. That's where I wrote my book."

Stewart: "Do you have a favorite shape for that home office? Let's say, would you like that office, uh… would you like it to have corners, or not to have corners?"

Clinton: "I think the world is so complicated, the fewer corners that you can have, the better."

Stewart:
"Do you prefer to sit in traffic, or cause it?"

Clinton: "I really hate to cause traffic, and sometimes I do. And I deeply regret it. I'm telling the world right now."

Stewart: "Do you enjoy constant, nonstop criticism?"

Clinton: "Enjoy is probably the wrong word. Expect. Survive. Live through. It just sorta comes with the territory."

So, she likes her offices oval and she likes to work from home. Clearly, all signs point to the White House.
