DONNA SHALALA: Can you give us some insight into how the TBD in your bio will play out? [applause and laughter]

SANJAY GUPTA: Listen, I have a feeling that if I ask you what you might be planning in a couple of years, you are probably not going to answer. Let me ask you this instead: How important is it for there to be a woman president in the United States? [applause]

CLINTON: [laughing] Oh, I told you he was very smart. That is a question that I will answer taking myself totally out of it. It is, for me, a part of the larger mission to expand political participation and leadership among women around the world. I guess the short answer is, I think it would be important. It is not going to solve all of our problems, but I think it would be a very strong statement that would be made to half our population, and half the world's population, so someday I hope it happens.

Westcott: What are your plans for 2016? [applause and laughter] Sorry, you know I had to ask that.

CLINTON: Yes, you did. I understand. I have to say, I don't know. Not a very satisfactory answer, I know, but what I have said and what I will keep saying, although I don't think I'm getting through very effectively, is that we have a lot of issues right now that need to be dealt with.

BARBARA WALTERS: When will you, if you do decide, whether or not you are going to run for president?

CLINTON: Well, it's such a difficult decision, and it's one that I am not going to rush into. And I don't think we should be looking at the next election. I think we should be looking at the work that we have today. Our unemployment rate is still too high. We have people getting kicked off of food stamps who are in terrible economic straits. Small businesses are not getting credit. I could go on and on. I think we ought to pay attention to what is happening right now.

WALTERS: I have to push for the answer about whether or not you might run for president.

CLINTON: I haven't made up my mind.

WALTERS: You really haven't?

CLINTON: I really have not. I will look carefully at what I think I can do and make that decision sometime next year.
