Will She be the first WOMAN PRES­I­DENT

Sources say she is not yet mak­ing pro-con lists about whether to run for pres­i­dent in 2016.

“I’m just sort of liv­ing my life and see­ing how it all feels to me,” Clin­ton said in an in­ter­view that aired Sun­day on “CBS Sun­day Morn­ing.” Clin­ton warned that who­ever runs in 2016 should be fo­cused on a vi­sion for the U.S. rather than on play­ing pol­i­tics.

“It’s not a con­test for who looks good, and who can have a quick an­swer,” she said. “We don’t have time for that right now.”

Clin­ton also said that who­ever be­comes the first fe­male pres­i­dent “has to rec­og­nize that the Amer­i­can po­lit­i­cal sys­tem is prob­a­bly the most dif­fi­cult, even bru­tal, in the world.”

She pushed back on re­cent ques­tions about her health and any im­pli­ca­tions a 2012 head in­jury may have for her po­ten­tial pres­i­den­tial run.

“I fell on my head and got a con­cus­sion and worked through the lin­ger­ing ef­fects,” such as dizzi­ness, she said.

“That’s all gone.”

Clin­ton de­fended her run as sec­re­tary of State, a po­si­tion she held from 2009 to 2013.

“I helped to re­store Amer­ica’s lead­er­ship,” she said, point­ing to changes in the U.S.’s relationship with Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan as well as help­ing to reach a 2012 cease­fire be­tween Is­rael and the Pales­tinian groups Ha­mas in the Gaza Strip.

Clin­ton also com­mented on re­cent de­vel­op­ments in the realm of

for­eign af­fairs, in­clud­ing the U.S. govern­ment’s pris­oner trade for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and the con­tin­ued ques­tion­ing of her role in re­spond­ing to the 2012 at­tacks on U.S. of­fi­cials in Beng­hazi, Libya.

Clin­ton warned against pass­ing judg­ment on the de­ci­sion to swap Guan­tanamo pris­on­ers for Bergdahl, call­ing it a dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion by mil­i­tary lead­er­ship.

“It’s just a core prin­ci­ple, you don’t leave any­body be­hind,” she said, adding that she hopes for more clar­i­fi­ca­tion on Bergdahl’s cap­ture.

On the Beng­hazi at­tacks, Clin­ton said she rec­og­nizes that some crit­ics will never be sat­is­fied by her an­swers to ques­tions about what could have been done be­fore or in the im­me­di­ate af­ter­math of the at­tacks.

“I did my best to fully co­op­er­ate with the Congress … but there’s a dif­fer­ence be­tween unan­swered ques­tions and un-lis­tened-to an­swers,” she said. Read more: http://the­hill.com/blogs/bal­lot-box/pres­i­den­tial­races/ 209413-hillary-clin­ton-no-2016-pro-con-lists-yet#ixz­z34wSVVx9e
