Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeated her claim that she does not plan to run for president in 2016, despite a widespread expectation that she’d be the Democratic frontrunner in that election.

“I’ve said I really don’t believe that that’s something I will do again,” Clinton told ABC’s Barbara Walters. “I am so grateful I had the experience of doing it before.”

But she said she could if she wanted to. “I am, thankfully, knock on wood, not only healthy, but have incredible stamina and energy,” Clinton also said. “I just want to see what else is out there. I’ve been doing, you know, this, this incredibly important and, and satisfying work here in Washington, as I say, for twenty years, I want to get out and spend some time looking at what else I can do to contribute.”
