Hillary Clinton has called it quits after the massively disappointing 2016 US presidential elections. This is according to a confidante close to the Democrat. The said confidante also said Clinton wants to focus on helping kids in need.

“I think she’s going to figure out ways to help kids and families,” Neera Tanden said. Tanden is the president of the Center for American Progress, a think-tank affiliated with the Democratic Party. “That’s been what she’s been focused on her whole life, and a lot of issues that are affecting them, over the next couple of years” and “I don’t expect her to ever run for any elected office again,” Tanden added.

Hillary Clinton Will Not Run for Public Office Again

The reaction comes after a New York Times article hinted that Clinton might run against incumbent New York mayor Bill de Blasio. The mayor was her campaign chief. Neera Tanden also said that she does not think Hillary Clinton will pursue this office, or any other public office, for that matter, Yahoo News reported. Hillary Clinton has kept a low profile since her defeat at the polls. However, she attended a couple of public events recently. She is also active, to a limited degree, on social media.

Last Sunday, Hillary Clinton watched the last show of Broadway musical The Color Purple. The sold-out crowd gave her “several ovations,” USA Today noted. She received a rock star welcome as supporters took out their smartphones to snap photos and videos. Other notable guests in the show were Anna Wintour and actress Debra Messing. The Color Purple actress Patrice Covington waved to Clinton, acknowledging the presence of “a lot of really famous and notable people.”

Clinton will be at the State Department on Tuesday. She served as secretary of this department from 2009 to 2013 under Barack Obama. The event is the unveiling of an exhibition hall named after her. Hillary Clinton, together with husband and former US president Bill Clinton, will also be at the Trump inauguration on January 20.
