She's old and fat. Oh...and wealthy.

Go away already.

The job she has now is particularly grueling, living out of a suitcase isn't easy at any age.

Why does everything always have to be a conspiracy?
I don't think it's a conspiracy. She has done a pretty good job representing America during a rough period. Given her ambition, I'm just surprised. When she was running for President she indicated that she would love to serve two terms like Bill did, because four years was not enough time to get things done. Two years ago she stated there was still a lot of unfinished business.

I doubt there is an "angle". She wants a break. Who can blame her, I don't know why any of them do it. Now, 2016 isn't that far away, and she certainly has the credentials and popularity. That could be the time for another Clinton in the WH.

Sounds like she isn't going to totally retire.....just serve as she chooses on her own terms at her own pace.

I'll bet that, if she was called, she would still be willing to serve as VP.

Hillary has been the person most responsible for turning our international status around from the laughing stock we became during the Bush years. We are once again seen as the leader America has been for a century. It's no surprise to me that she is weary- all of our best Secretaries of State have burned out in one term. It's a tense, unrelenting, exhausting job.

I hope that offering her the VP spot will happen. Whoever the next Secretary of State is will have to have a lot of stamina and courage, as we are now entering a period where diplomacy will be harder than ever, and more critically needed.
Having Hillary as a wise advisor and a back-up would be very good for the new Sec. of State and our nation. We still need her expertise for a while, and being the VP is not nearly so demanding.

I never cared for Hillary or Bill and the thought of her in the White House sends chills up my spine.

However, I have to admit she's been a stellar Secretary of State. It seems as though that's the job she was born to. Frankly, I'm more than a little surprised at how well she's soldiered for the President, given the acrimony of their campaigns in '08 and her unbridled ambition, but she's proved herself worthy of the office of SecState.

Hat's off to Hillary for a job well done.

She was laughed at all over the world. Whenever she enters a room the people look behind her waiting to see if Bill was there.

Ideally, I would like to see her switch places with Joe Biden. I think she would be very effective as Vice President (although she has done an excellent job as Secretary of State) and Joe Biden always seems more fit as a Secretary of State to me.
