Hillary Clinton is not running for president. She said so.

Just a day after suggesting America is a racist nation run by white supremacists, Hillary Clinton has announced she will not seek the Democrat nomination for president next year. In an exclusive interview with News 12 The Bronx, however, Clinton says she is not ready to fade away just yet.

"I'm not running, but I'm going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe," she said.

Oh, joy.

In her interview with the local station, Clinton pretends to be stunned by the level of polarization that exists in the nation.

'We've just gotten so polarized. We've gotten into really opposing camps, unlike anything I've ever seen in my adult life," she said.

Give that lady the Academy Award for best performance. Hillary Clinton has been among the most polarizing figures in modern political history.

I'm glad that Clinton has decided to sit this one out. Her brand of politics is as dirty and divisive as it gets. Her character is soiled and she represents everything that is bad about government and power.

Clinton promises to work with and advise the Democrat candidates who are vying for the party's nomination. Don't sit by the phone waiting for it to ring, Hillary, because you may have a long wait.

Her window has closed forever. Now Hillary Clinton just needs to go away.
