Hillary Clinton Answers Question About Possible Presidency Run

Despite much speculation, Hillary Clinton has denied rumors that she is planning on running for president in 2016, but that doesn't mean it might happen anyways.

As she leaves her position as secretary of state, Clinton has said that she does not have any plans set in stone, except for catching up on sleep. 

When asked on the eve of her departure if she would run for president in 2016, she said, "Well, I am not thinking about anything like that right now. I am looking forward to finishing up my tenure as secretary of state, and then catching up on about 20 years of sleep deprivation."

She spoke in the Newseum in Washington as students watched from around the world. 

"It's up to me to make a decision on my own future. I right now am not inclined to do that," Clinton said. 

"But I will do everything I can to make sure that women compete at the highest levels, not only in the United States but around the world."

She spoke before the Senate approved Obama's nomination of John Kerry as her replacement. 

Kerry may be sworn in as early as Wednesday. 

Clinton is leaving her position with high approval ratings, something that could bode well for her if she ran for president. 

Many of her supporters have even registered a "Ready for Hillary" political action committee, without her approval, to raise money for her election if she ran. 

Clinton did reveal one plan for her immediate future: to write a memoir. 

She added, "I don't know what I will say in it yet."
