Clinton to decide on 2016 next year

Hillary Clinton says she will decide 'sometime next year' whether to run for US presidency in 2016

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she has not yet made up her mind about whether to run for president in 2016 but will "make that decision sometime next year".

Mrs Clinton said in a television interview that it is a "difficult decision" she does not want to rush into.

She said in the interview that the focus should be on issues like unemployment, people "getting kicked off food stamps" and small businesses that cannot get access to credit.

Polls show Mrs Clinton as the leading Democratic contender to succeed President Barack Obama. The former first lady is writing a book about her State Department years which will be published next year.
