(Newser) – Hillary Clinton sits down with People magazine for a cover story, and the one media outlet you think might let The Subject of Unending Speculation go, in fact does not. "I know I have a decision to make," she says of making a second run for the Oval Office. "But part of what I've been thinking about, is everything I'm interested in and everything I enjoy doing—and with the extra added joy of 'I'm about to become a grandmother,' I want to live in the moment." But "I am concerned about what I see happening in the country and in the world." More from her interview:

  • On the Oval Office's glass ceiling: "I think it reflects a desire on the part of a lot of Americans, not just women, that we have unfinished business. I’m certainly in the camp that says we need to break down that highest, hardest glass ceiling in American politics. To have a woman president is something I would love to see happen, but I’ll just have to make my own decision about what I think is right for me."
  • On how she and the hubs 'totally binge-watched' House of Cards: It was "a little bit of the, 'Oh, my gosh, I can't believe we can just sit here and do this' and, 'We're only going to watch one episode, oh, let's watch another. OK, well, we have time, we're not going anywhere, let's watch a third.' I know that sounds kind of devoid of content."
  • Speaking of Bill: "People say that he’s too thin. He doesn’t think so, and he has an enormous amount of energy."
  • Oh, and her hair: "I’m at an age where I can pretty much do what I want: 'Here I am, whether you like my hair or not.'"
  • Not a walker: The Wall Street Journal has an image of the cover, and it points out that, contrary to some online buzz, Clinton is not leaning on a walker. It's just a chair.
Clinton kicks off a book tour next week for her memoir, Hard Choices. Cick to read about how she had reservations about a prisoner swap for Bowe Bergdahl.

" Hillary: Time to Shatter 'Highest Glass Ceiling'" That may be but Hillary is not the one. She has more baggage than United Airlines lost and found.

The republicans know Hillary is the next president. That's why they attack her worse than they do Obama... because the republicans don't have functional policies that the voting public wants, so their only possible path to reelection is to mercilessly character assassinate the functional candidates. We need to replace the republicans with a functional third party.

CNN - all Hillary, all the time. LOL CNN! Does this woman (?) ever wear a dress? I am beginning to wonder about her preferences, not to mention there has to be some reason why Bill strayed so many times.
