Hillary Clinton hopes to see a female US president in her lifetime
Monday 07 May 2012
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she has no desire to make for another run for the highest office in the land but hopes to see a female US president in her lifetime.
Politely turning aside questions about her political intentions at a town hall event in Kolkata, Mrs Clinton said she really wanted to see "that final glass ceiling" broken.
She noted, though, that the American political process is difficult and heavily dependent on fund raising, which makes it hard for any candidate to succeed.
Still, she said she thinks there will be an election that will elect a woman president.
As for herself, she says she is done with the political highwire. She says she just wants to "get back to taking some deep breaths".
