“I’m not running, but I’m going to keep working, and speaking, and standing up for what I believe,” Clinton said in a New York television interview.
“I want to be sure that people understand: I’m going to keep speaking out,” Clinton said. “I’m not going anywhere. What’s at stake in our country, the kinds of things that are happening right now are deeply troubling to me. And I’m also thinking hard about how do we start talking and listening to each other again.”
“We’ve just gotten so polarized,” she continued. “We’ve gotten into really opposing camps, unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my adult life.”
Clinton reportedly met with a range of candidates and individuals considering a presidential run including the Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar and former Vice President Biden, who is still considering whether he will launch a 2020 campaign.
“I’ve told every one of them, don’t take anything for granted, even though we have a long list of real problems and broken promises from this administration. We can’t take anything for granted. We have to work really, really hard to make our case to the American people, and I’m gonna do everything I can to help the Democrats win back the White House.” Clinton said.
Clinton, the wife of former President Bill Clinton, served two terms as a senator from New York and as secretary of state during former President Barack Obama’s first term in office.
Among the Democratic candidates who have declared their intention to run for president so far are Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
