Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton says she isn’t thinking about running for President, but she is thinking about when she’ll think about it. She told a group of Long Island supporters Friday that she would begin seriously considering a campaign sometime next year.

The former Secretary of State said that she would decide based on whether issues like housing, education, and health care could have real solutions, Newsday reports.

In her speech to the Long Island Association at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, Clinton said she wanted to wait to decide whether she would run. “I want to think seriously about it; I probably won’t begin thinking about it until sometime next year,” she said. “I will think about it because its something on a lot of people’s minds. And it’s on my mind as well. But I want us to think more broadly.”

But she did say that people should stop speculating, because the focus on the next election is “”bad for the country. Govern now. People have been elected to do a job now. And hold them accountable.”
