Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton hinted at a future in the spotlight during a St. Patrick's Day celebration in Scranton, Pennsylvania, on Friday.

Clinton, speaking at the 19th annual St. Patrick's Day Celebration for the Society of Irish Women, expressed her concerns over the sharp political divide between the Right and Left in America when she hinted at her future.

"I do not believe that we can let political divides harden into personal divides," Clinton said, according to reporters in attendance at the event. "We can’t just ignore or turn a cold shoulder because they disagree politically, we have to listen to each other and learn from each other."

"I am ready to come out of the woods," Clinton added to an applause. "And to help shine a light on what is already happening around kitchen tables, at dinners like this, to help draw strength that will enable everybody to keep going."

According to reports, the comment also came after Clinton made repeated jokes about walking in the woods.

Following her loss to President Donald Trump in last November's presidential election, Clinton has kept a relatively low profile, especially in the immediate weeks following the election. However her quip is a reference to the handful of times she was spotted walking with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in the woods around their Chappaqau, New York, home after the election. Clinton's woods walks were even the subject of a skit in "Saturday Night Live."

But Clinton has been a little more public in recent weeks. It was even reported this week that Clinton is still mulling over a run for New York City mayor later this year.
