Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday refused to rule out another shot at the presidency, telling a radio interviewer in the United Kingdom that she would “never, never, never say ‘never.’”
“I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it,” Clinton confessed in an interview on BBC Radio 5. “But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”

Clinton was in London promoting a new book, “The Book of Gutsy Women,” which she wrote with her daughter, Chelsea Clinton. She admitted that, with the filing deadlines rapidly approaching for some state primaries and others already passed, it may be a little late for her to jump in the game.
“I know, it’s way past time,” she said on Tuesday. “Look, I think all the time about what kind of president I would’ve been and what I would’ve done differently and what I think it would’ve meant to our country and our world,” she said. “Whoever wins next time is going to have a big task trying to fix everything that’s been broken.”
Chelsea Clinton, in the same interview, said she would support anything her mother decides to do. “We have to retire — her gentle word — the current occupant of the White House,” Chelsea Clinton said. “And get back to having a country that is a pluralistic, robust, respectful, kind democracy that hopefully functions for everyone.
“I don’t think we have any of those things being true in our country right now,” Chelsea Clinton added.
