During a Saturday evening session of the Clinton Global Initiative University, a young woman asked Clinton whether she would consider running for president in 2016.

The student said if Clinton wouldn’t represent women in politics, “who will?”

That got a roar of approval from the 1,000-plus students attending the event at Arizona State University.

The former secretary of state says she is concerned about the direction of the nation but adds that “it’s not just who runs for office” but what they do once they get there.

Clinton smiled and told the crowd that she was “obviously thinking about all kinds of decisions.”
