Clinton Restates Plan to Leave Post at End of Obama’s First Term

Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said today that she doesn’t plan to stay in her post if President Barack Obama wins a second term.

“I’ve made it clear that I will certainly stay on until the president nominates someone and that transition can occur,” Clinton told State Department employees during a town-hall meeting. “But I think after 20 years -- and it will be 20 years -- of being on the high wire of American politics and all of the challenges that come with that, it would probably be a good idea to find out how tired I am.”

Clinton became first lady when her husband, Bill Clinton, was inaugurated as president on Jan. 20, 1993. She was elected to the U.S. Senate from New York in November 2000 and was sworn in as the 67th secretary of state on Jan. 21, 2009.

Separately, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner, the last member of the Obama administration’s original economic team, said yesterday that he doesn’t expect to remain in his job if the president is re-elected.
