More of the interview will air tonight on "NBC Nightly News" and an extended version will air Wednesday on "Andrea Mitchell Reports" on MSNBC.
An excerpt from the interview follows:
How much will health, your own personal health - we know that you had at least two clots - how does that factor into a decision about whether you run for President and all the flying that it entails?
SECRETARY Hillary Clinton:
Well it doesn't factor in at all. I mean, you know that, I have no doubt that I am healthy enough and my stamina is great enough and I'll be fully recovered to do whatever I choose to do. But I don't have any decisions made. I have no real plans to make any such decisions. I'm looking forward to some very quiet time catching up on everything from sleep, to reading, to walking, with my family. I think it's hard to imagine for me what it will be like next week when I wake up and I have nowhere to go. Maybe I'll go back to sleep for a change!
