(Newser) – With the deadline to register for the New Hampshire primary just a few days away, Hillary Clinton still isn't ruling out a 2020 White House run. "I, as I say, never, never, never say never," she told the BBC Tuesday when asked if she was considering a last-minute bid for the Democratic nomination. "I will certainly tell you, I'm under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it." She added, however, "that as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans."

Clinton was in London to promote The Book of Gutsy Women, which she co-wrote with daughter Chelsea, Politico reports. "I think all the time about what kind of president I would have been and what I would have done differently and what I think it would have meant to our country and the world," she told the BBC. "I think about it all the time. Being able to do that, and look, whoever wins next time is going to have a big task trying to fix everything that's been broken." A Fox News poll released earlier this month showed Clinton leading President Trump 43 points to 41, although most polls before her 2016 election loss showed her with a bigger lead.
