Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says she hasn't made up her mind about whether to run for president in 2016 but will "make that decision sometime next year."
Clinton says in an interview with Barbara Walters of ABC News that it's a "difficult decision" she does not want to rush into.
She says in the interview the focus should be on issues like unemployment, people "getting kicked off food stamps" and small business that cannot get access to credit.
Polls show Clinton as the leading Democratic contender to succeed President Barack Obama. The former first lady is writing a book about her State Department years that will be released next year.
