Hillary Clinton: Secretary of No When It Comes to Future Plans with the Obama Administration, President

I love this video clip of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton being interviewed this week by CNN's Wolf Blitzer. She's the Secretary of No -- she won't continue as Secretary of State should Obama win in 2012. Nor does she want to be Secretary of Defense. And she won't run again for president, either:
Mayor of Pepper Pike isn't quite the same, but I've been saying no to whether I'll run for that office since the day three months ago that my mayor announced his decision to run for a sixth term (he's been in our city's government for 36 years). So I have a teensy inkling of what it's like to be asked, persistently, about future plans.
Like other people referenced in this Politico story (see also Jennifer Epstein's original report on the news also at Politico) about Clinton's intentions and speculation about her future, her party of no behavior does not surprise me in the least (especially since she's been saying that this term as Secretary of State will be her last public position for a while. But there is not a better-positioned person in politics than Hillary Clinton for having whatever effect she desires on Americans or the global community, no matter what she does.
What do you want Hillary Clinton to do next? What would you be considering if you were her?
