Says the U.S. is behind Germany

Hillary Clinton says in a new interview that she “will do all [she] can” to see that the U.S. gets a female president—even if it’s not her.

“We are way behind you in Germany on this,” Clinton, referring to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, told the German magazine Stern in an interview to be published Wednesday. “Of course I want the U.S.A. to have a woman leader soon as well and I will do all I can for that to happen, though I don’t know yet if it will be me.”

The former Secretary of State has said she won’t make a decision about whether to run for president again until later this year.
