Hillary Clinton Will Make a Final Decision About Running For President Early Next Year

The wait is almost over.


When people talk about the 2016 presidential campaign, there's one name on everyone's lips: Hillary Clinton.

The former first lady was a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination back in 2008, but was eclipsed by President Barack Obama's rapid momentum. Ever since, rumors have swirled about her potential run for the nation's highest office.

During a recent event in Mexico City, Clinton was asked about her presidential aspirations, but only responded with hypotheticals. She told observers that while it's on her mind, she isn't ready to announce anything just yet: "Obviously I'm thinking about it, but I have not made a decision yet." She continued, explaining: "I am going to be making a decision around probably after the first of the year."

Between her eight years as first lady, serving as a United States senator, and being Obama's Secretary of State, Clinton says her experience will allow her to bring a "unique vantage point" to the Oval Office. We agree.

Until her final confirmation, we'll be anxiously waiting!
