Kolkata, India - Hillary Clinton has revealed she has no desire to make another run for the White House - but still hopes to see an American woman president in her lifetime.

The U.S. Secretary of State was giving a talk about India’s future energy supplies at a town hall in Kolkata during a three-day visit to the country when she made the frank remarks.

She told the congregation that she really wanted to see ‘that final glass ceiling’ broken after making her own bid for office when she sought the Democratic nomination four years ago and barely lost to Barack Obama.

Clinton added that the American political process is difficult and heavily dependent on fund raising - which makes it hard for any candidate to succeed.

She said: ‘I think that there will be an election that will elect a woman,’ before quickly adding that wouldn’t be her.

Clinton continued: ‘I would like to come back to India and just wander around without the streets being closed. I just want to get back to taking some deep breaths, feeling that there are other ways I can continue to serve.’

This sounds racist to me. Typical liberal comment. Imagine if someone said he specifically wants only a man for president, based on gender.

No matter what the presidential candidate's stance will be on terrorism, iran, communism, gay marriage, abortion etc. Hillary would vote for her as long as she's female.

Then I guess that would be a good thing if a female Republican were running.

I was a senior in high school when pelosi got her promotion and was the first woman to do so. I remember, my male teacher being shocked that I, as a woman, was not thrilled by this milesyone. Why would a conservative be happy about pelodi even if she were a man???

"This sounds racist to me."

Well, you would be wrong. It might sound "sexist" if any discriminatory adjective is to be applied, but there is not even a whiff of racism in Mrs Clinton's remark.

Trust her: she is a lawyer.

I love how the Dems say that they want to see everything in "post feminist" or in "post racial" terms, but they're the ones who keep bringing it up. How about we simply vote for the best qualified person, regardless of race or gender? But no, says Hillary. She reminds us that the liberals will never allow anything like race or gender to go away in their minds.

She puts on her pants one leg at a time, just like any other guy!

She's full of it, which is normal for a liberal.

She only wants a woman president IF they are democrat. If a black or woman runs for anything as a Conservative, they are vilified by the left.
