Hillary Clinton to Step Down as Secretary of State
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has had enough of the political game. The Secretary of State, Former United States Senator, Former First Lady, Former Presidential Candidate says she has enough of politics and wants to relax for a while .
She told a meeting of State Department employees,
“I have made it clear that I will certainly stay on until the president nominates someone and that transition can occur. But I think after 20 years, and it will be 20 years, of being on the high wire of American politics and all of the challenges that come with that, it would be probably a good idea to just find out how tired I am.”
She left the door open that she may get back into the fray by saying,
“everyone always says that when they leave these jobs.”
As the Secretary of State Clinton cannot engage in any activity that even resembles partisan politics. She said she hasn’t even paid attention to or watched any of the Republican Presidential debates.
“It is a little odd for me to be totally out of an election season. But, you know, I didn’t watch any of those debates.”
Clinton fully expects that with such a heated election cycle coming up that international affairs will probably be on the back burner of the President and those in government.
She then joked,
“The good news is maybe we can even get more done if they are not paying attention, so just factor that in.”
