What would cause Hillary Clinton not to run for president?

Hillary Clinton downplays controversy around Bergdahl's release

(CNN) – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday called the United States' "tradition" of not leaving soldiers in captivity a "noble" one in what amounted to a measured defense of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's controversial release.
