Clinton to PBS: No 2nd term as secretary of state

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said in a recent television interview that she doesn't see herself serving another 4-year term in her position.

Clinton sat down with PBS television's Tavis Smiley Wednesday and said eight years would be too much, considering the challenges of her job.

When asked if she could do another four years, Clinton replied: "No, I really can't."

She went on to say: "I mean, it would be very challenging. It's a 24 / 7 job, and I think at some point, I will be very happy to pass it on to someone else."

Clinton, who has previously said that she would not seek re-election to the New York Senate seat she held from 2000 to 2009, also ruled out another presidential run.

A spokeswoman from Clinton's office said Friday she could not elaborate and had no other comment.
