Hillary Clinton isn't ready to think about whether she's running for president. Not yet at least. Next year? Probably.
"I want to think seriously about it; I probably won't begin thinking about it until sometime next year," Clinton told an audience on Long Island Friday, according to Newsday.
"I will think about it because it's something on a lot of people's minds. And it's on my mind as well. But I want us to think more broadly."
According to Newsday, the former secretary of state and first lady was speaking to a group of business and political leaders. The final decision, Clinton said, will be based on whether she feels there's a chance to solve intractable issues on matters such as education, health care and housing.
Despite polls putting her far ahead of both Democratic and Republican opponents, Clinton admonished against the advanced 2016 forecasting.
Speculation is "bad for the country," Clinton said.
"Govern now. People have been elected to do a job now. And hold them accountable."
