Hillary Clinton: VP Run Not 'In The Realm Of Possibility'

MSNBC.COM - Hillary Clinton shot down speculation she could join the Obama 2012 ticket as vice president in 2012 in an exclusive interview with TODAY. Switching positions with Joe Biden, per rumors swirling around Washington, is not "in the realm of possibility,'' the secretary of state told Savannah Guthrie.

"I do not think it's even in the realm of possibility, and in large measure because I think Vice President Biden has done an amazingly good job,'' Clinton told Guthrie in an interview that aired partially on Thursday. "He has taken on the burden of, you know, selling the economic plan, of traveling the country, of answering people's questions.''

The possibility of an Obama/Clinton ticket in 2012 has not even been raised to her, she said.

"It's maybe a subject for speculation on Google, but it's not a serious issue in the administration,'' Clinton said.

Guthrie discussed a range of issues with Clinton, from the alleged Iranian plot to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador to Washington to domestic affairs to whether she will run for president in 2016. The exclusive TODAY interview will air in full on Monday.

Clinton believes that the alleged plot by the Iranian government to kill a Saudi official, which she called a "dangerous escalation," came from the highest levels.

"We think that this was conceived and directed from Tehran,'' Clinton said. "We know that it goes to a certain level within the Quds Force, which is part of the Revolutionary Guard, which is the military wing of the Iranian government. And we know that this was in the making, and there was a lot of communication between the defendants and others in Tehran.

"So we're going to let the evidence unfold. But the important point to make is that this just is in violation of international norms. It is a state-sponsored act of terror, and the world needs to speak out strongly against it.''

Clinton would not speculate on whether the act was ordered by the Iranian leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, or what the motivation may have been behind the alleged plot.

"It's a little hard to tell what was really going on, why this was given a seal of approval, why there was a go-head from Tehran,'' she said. "It's difficult to know who's actually making the decisions. Was this for political purposes? Was this just a crazy idea that got out of hand?''
