Hillary Clinton tells CNN's Wolf Blitzer that she doesn't want to serve another term in the Obama administration. Oh, she also doesn't want to run for president. At least that's what she says:

Q- President of the United States?

You know, I had a wonderful experience running and I am very proud of the support I had and very grateful for the opportunity, but I'm going to be, you know, moving on.

Q- I asked my viewers and followers on Twitter to send questions and a lot of them said, "Ask her if she'll run in 2016 for the presidency." A lot of folks would like to you to do that.

Well that's very kind, but I am doing what I want to do right now and I have no intention or any idea even of running again. I'm going to do the best I can at this job for the next two years.

Clinton will turn 69 years old just days before the 2016 election, making her almost a year younger than Reagan when he was first elected president.
