During an interview with Emma Barnett on BBC Radio 5 Live, Clinton said that she often thinks about what things would have been like if she won the election.
“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. So of course I think about it, 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,” Clinton said.
When pressed further about her potential ambitions to become president, Clinton said:
“As I say, never, never, never say never.”

“I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it,” she added.
However, she was quick to say it was “not in her plans,” despite not ruling it out.
“But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans,” she added.
It is not entirely impossible for Clinton to enter the race at this point, but it is very unlikely, as the deadline to file has already passed in many U.S. states.
Clinton may have more name recognition than most of the other candidates, but that isn’t necessarily a good thing at this point. If she were to enter the race, there is a very slim chance that she would even make it through the primaries.
