Hillary Clinton’s interview with Diane Sawyer, annotated [VIDEO]

Hillary Clinton’s new memoir hits shelves today -- which means the former secretary of state is hitting the media circuit.

She kicked off her TV blitz to promote the book, “Hard Choices,” starting with a primetime interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer Monday night. Clinton remained mum about if she’s running for president in 2016 (though let’s be honest: she’s running for president in 2016). But she did pepper the interview with smaller gems. For example, she:

- Brushed off questions about that pesky blood clot and re-iterated that her health is fine -- no, really;

- Mentioned Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) (who has apparently had three concussions) in a sort-of bipartisan PSA for treating concussions; and

- Made a reference to Diane Sawyer’s age! (Hillary is two years younger than Diane, aged 66 and 68, respectively).

What does it all mean?!

The Fix’s Chris Cillizza and Post diplomatic correspondent Anne Gearan read between the lines to offer their own color commentary on Clinton’s responses. Watch it here.
