Hillary Clinton has acknowledged that she is "wrestling" with the idea of running for president again, but said that she remains "pragmatic and realistic" as she considers her prospects for 2016.
In her first major interview since leaving the Obama administration eight months ago, the former secretary of state told New York Magazine she was considering a bid but that it was not a decision that "has to be made soon".
"I do" Clinton said, when asked if she "wrestles with running".
"But I'm both a pragmatist and realistic. I think I have a pretty good idea of the political and governmental challenges that are facing our leaders, and I'll do whatever I can from whatever position I find myself in to advocate for the values and the policies I think are right for the country. I will just continue to weigh what the factors are that would influence me making a decision one way or another."
The former first lady and New York senator did not elaborate on a timetable for her decision.
"I'm not in any hurry"
she said "I think it's a serious decision, not to be made lightly, but it's also not one that has to be made soon. The election is more than three years away and I just don't think it's good for the country."

quietly slipped into Miami on Thursday to address a travel agents convention
in a speech where the former secretary of state said little about troubles abroad or the future ambitions of the likely presidential-race frontrunner…
At one point, a member of the audience, Andrew Rothberg, had his Galaxy Note II smartphone taken from him by security, which removed his picture of Clinton onstage and then gave his device back in front of a Miami Herald reporter in the auditorium stands
Rothberg said he was more puzzled than upset. He said he guessed at one point that Clinton’s handlers might have wanted to control the event to keep activists from infiltrating the event and raising awareness about issues like the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012. But he wasn’t sure.
Clinton’s speech came a day after congressional Republicans led another hearing into the attacks and faulted her and the administrations preparations am response to the Sept. 11 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans: Ambassador Christopher Stevens, information management officer Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, security officers and former Navy SEALs.
