She made the comments during an appearance on “CBS Sunday Morning” with host Jane Pauley. Clinton is currently touring the country to promote her new book, “What Happened.”

“Yes. As an active politician, it’s over,” she said.
Don’t wave goodbye just yet, though. Clinton won’t be disappearing completely. “I am done with being a candidate, but I am not done with politics,” she said. “I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake.”
That leaves room for Clinton to network, give speeches and raise funds for other Democratic candidates. It also opens the door for Clinton to do work for the Clinton Foundation, something that has seemingly already begun.
