Hillary Clinton managed in a wide-ranging issue to insist, again, that she has no interest in being president, while also nudging women who want it all to “quit whining” and make it happen.

In a wide-ranging feature for Marie Claire, Clinton reiterated her plans to retire from politics when she steps down as secretary of State in January, though much of the article is focused on her work to promote the roles of women in all areas of the world.

Urgent Poll: Obama or Romney? Who Won the Second Debate?

Her hope is to “be up there cheering” for the first woman President, she said, but that she has no plan to run for president and is looking forward to “being her own person.”

Clinton responds strongly to an article written for The Atlantic last year by, Anne-Marie Slaughter, her former director of policy planning, about the difficulties of being a woman who wants to be a good mother and also have a high-powered career.

"I can't stand whining," she said. "I can't stand the kind of paralysis that some people fall into because they're not happy with the choices they've made. You live in a time when there are endless choices.  . . . Money certainly helps, and having that kind of financial privilege goes a long way, but you don't even have to have money for it. But you have to work on yourself. Do something."
