Clinton 'wrestling' with idea to run in 2016

In Hillary Clinton's first interview since leaving the State Department, she is finally coming clean: Yes, she is "wrestling" with the idea of running for president.

It's taken awhile for her to get there.

In 2011, the question from NBC got an emphatic, "No." Then in 2012, a slight tweak in the verbiage, when she told ABC, "I really don't believe that that's something I will do again." And finally, this year in an interview with CNN, Clinton said, "I am not thinking about anything like that right now."

But now, in an interview with New York Magazine, Clinton said, "I will just continue to weigh what the factors are that would influence me making a decision one way or the other."

Translation? She's thinking about it.

CNN's Erin McPike reports.
