“I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it.”
For months, Hillary has refused to rule out the possibility of running for president. Again.

She has alluded to the possibility multiple times, including in a Twitter exchange in which she quipped back at President Donald Trump, who had urged “Crooked Hillary” to enter the race to edge out “Uber Left” Elizabeth Warren.
“Don’t tempt me,” she responded. “Do your job.”
Clear as mud.
