Hillary's many choices post SOS 2013-2014,..with 2016 firmly in mind

from political wire ( a headline board with a few paragraphs) if you click on Politicalwire
it leads to the NY Times article reference.

Aides and friends tell the New York Times that Hillary Clinton's plan "looks like this: exit the State Department shortly after Inauguration Day and then seclude herself to rest and reflect on what she wants to do for the next few years. Those who have invited her for 2013 engagements have been told not to even ask again until April or May."

"She and her husband would like to buy a house in the Hamptons or upstate New York, several friends said, and Mrs. Clinton will finally have more time for everyday activities like exercise... She is likely to use her husband's foundation as at least a temporary perch, several former aides said, and she has been considering a new book -- not a painful examination of her failed 2008 presidential bid, as she once proposed, but a more upbeat look at her time as secretary of state."

But Clinton "may find that her freedom comes with one huge constraint. The more serious she is about 2016, the less she can do -- no frank, seen-it-all memoir; no clients, commissions or controversial positions that could prove problematic. She will be under heavy scrutiny even by Clinton standards, discovering what it means to be a supposedly private citizen in the age of Twitter."

2. she is too old for SCOTUS

He should appoint someone who is at most in their 50's.

6. Some people are too power mad to realize when their time has passed.

As someone said about about Hillary "ambition isn't enough". But, she could take up making "action" portraying a Secretary of State heroically dodging sniper bullets in Bosnia.
