Washington, Jan 27 (IANS/RIA Novosti) US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told her State Department employees that she was ready to be out of the public eye.
“I think after 20 years – and it will be 20 years – of being on the high wire of American politics and all of the challenges that come with that, it would be probably a good idea to just find out how tired I am,” the Politico newspaper quoted her as saying.
Clinton, who in the past ran in senatorial and presidential elections, said this time she finds it “a little odd to be totally out of an election season.”
The Democratic Party politician also said she did not even watch any of the Republican presidential hopefuls’ debates this year.
She stated earlier that she would not serve in President Barack Obama’s second term, if he is re-elected, and wants to focus on projects dealing with women and children rights protection.
