WASHINGTON--U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has repeatedly insisted she would leave her office as America's top diplomat at the end of Obama's first term. But she hinted at serving beyond then in an interview with The Wall Street Journal published Thursday.
"A lot of people have talked to me about staying," Clinton said, leaving that possibility open for the first time since she took office in 2009.
In a separate interview with The Washington Post published Friday, Clinton reiterated her intention to step down after a single term, even if Obama is re-elected.
