ABC’s Barbara Walters predicted that America may be on the cusp of a second Clinton era as she introduced her “Most Fascinating Person of 2013.”

But former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the recipient of that distinction, insisted she had not made up her mind about running for president and would not make up her mind until 2014. 

“I will look carefully at what I think I can do and make that decision sometime next year,” she said.

Clinton said the country’s economic concerns, including food stamps and a high unemployment rate, were more pressing than her future political prospects. 

“It’s such a difficult decision, and it’s one that I’m not going to rush into,” she said. “And I don’t think we should be looking at the next election. I think we should be looking at the work we have today.”

The former secretary of state said she did think it was important for the country to have a woman in the White House, although she didn’t “know the exact timing of it or who that might be.”
