SHARE Clinton: 2016 decision likely by early next year

MEXICO CITY — Hillary Rodham Clinton says she will likely make a decision on whether to run for president around the beginning of the new year.

The former U.S. Secretary of State, senator and first lady says her background gives her a “unique vantage point” to bring to the White House should she run in 2016.

She was asked about her intentions Friday at an event in Mexico City honoring thousands of scholarship students supported by the Telmex Foundation, one of several charitable organizations under the umbrella of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim.

Clinton would only speak “hypothetically” about a possible presidential bid. She added she would have to have a clear vision of what she wants to achieve, and as well as how she would lead politically to realize that vision.
