Hillary Clinton says she'll probably start giving serious thought to another presidential run next year.

"I want to think seriously about it; I probably won't begin thinking about it until sometime next year," Clinton told Newsday after a speech on Long Island. "I will think about it because it's something on a lot of people's minds. And it's on my mind as well. But I want us to think more broadly."Clinton said the country shouldn't focus on the next president just yet.

"(It's) bad for the country," she said. "Govern now. People have been elected to do a job now. And hold them accountable."
