Hillary Clinton Ready to Leave Politics

It’s not the first time she’s said she’s getting out of politics after her current job, but Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made it clear Thursday that she’s ready to call it quits. In a meeting with State Department employees, Clinton said she’s tuckered out after 20 years on “the high wire of American politics.” She said she will finish her term and, if President Obama wins re-election in November, will serve with him until he finds a replacement. She hasn’t been following the election season or the GOP debates, which she acknowledged was “a little odd” for her. But after being first lady, senator, an aspiring presidential candidate and finally Secretary of State, Clinton said “it would probably be a good idea just to find out how tired I am.”
