Hillary Clinton: I Would Rather Be a Great One-Term Sec. of State than a Mediocre Two-Term One. In Fact, I'd Just Rather Be a One-Termer, Period. For Some Reason I Want to Be Free in 2012.

A Stereotypical Flamboyantly Gay Dude just emailed me to say, "Awk-waaaard!"

TAVIS SMILEY: Finally, thereís already speculation about whether or not Secretary Clinton is going to do this for the full first time, and whether or not she has any interest if asked to stay on to do it for eight years? You see how tough the job is, can you imagine yourself doing all four years and, if asked, doing it for another four years?

HILLARY CLINTON: No, I really canít. I mean, it is justÖ

TAVIS SMILEY: No to what? All four or eight?

HILLARY CLINTON: The whole, the whole eight, I mean, that that would be very challenging. But I, you know, I don't wanna make any predictions sitting here, Iím honored to serve, I serve at the pleasure of the President, but itís a, itís a 24/7 job, and I think at some point, I will be very happy to LAUGHS pass it on to someone else.

TAVIS SMILEY: That opens the door for the obvious question, what would Hillary Clinton want to do when she is no longer Secretary of State?

HILLARY CLINTON: Oh, I, thereís so many things Iím interested in, I mean, really going back to private life and spending time reading, and writing, and maybe teaching, doing some personal travel, not the kind of travel where you bring along a couple of hundred people with you. Just focusing on, on issues of women, girls, families, the kind of intersection between whatís considered Ďreal politiqueí and real life politics, which has always fascinated me.

TAVIS SMILEY: And finally, just for the record, you have said before, emphatically, in fact, that you are not interested in running again for President of the United States, Iím taking your answer now to mean that thatís still the same?

HILLARY CLINTON: Absolutely not interested.

And when Hillary Clinton says she's "Absolutely not interested" in achieving the dream she's been haunted by since age 4, you can take that to the bank.

You know what I'm absolutely not interested in? 1) Crazy blog-money, and 2) Val-U-Rite vodka, and 3) free-range hobo hunting, and 4) putting my mangerines into soft, yielding pudding.


Thanks to Gabe on Twitter.

PS: Not to be a persnickety dick, but I love that no one at The Politico apparently knows how to spell "realpolitik." They resort to a dumb homophonic guess without so much as a (sic).
