Hillary Clinton: I'd Skip a Pat-Down And she's optimistic it'll get less-invasive By Polly Davis Doig, Newser Staff Posted Nov 21, 2010 12:04 PM CST 10 comments Comments Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. (AP Photo/ Francisco Seco) (Newser) – Hillary Clinton probably can't even remember what it's like to fly commercial, but would the secretary of State man up and submit to a pat-down? "Not if I, not if I could avoid it," Clinton told Face the Nation. "No, I mean who would?" Of note, Clinton said the TSA's pat-down will get "less intrusive and more precise" and that the feds are “looking for ways to diminish the impact on the traveling public.” Elsewhere on the Sunday dial, as per Politico: Clinton says the White House will find the time "in the lame duck" to push the New Start Treaty through. Clinton's also "not in any way interested in or pursuing anything in elective office," no matter how many times you ask her if she'll run in 2012. Also not running: Bobby Jindal, who swears his only agenda is his re-election campaign next year. Also not running: Rick Perry, who wonders, "So why do you want to be up there if the action is down here in the states?"
