(CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used no diplomatic doublespeak Sunday when asked about a rumor she was considering a run for governor of New York next year.
"No, no," she said on the ABC program "This Week," adding: "I hope maybe we can put it to rest today."
Clinton said she was committed to her job in President Barack Obama's Cabinet, adding it was "an extraordinarily important time to be secretary of state for our country."
"That rumor is dead," Clinton said. "If you could please put it in a little box and send it off somewhere, I'd appreciate it."
