US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has
been asked to run for Mayor of New York City after retiring from the
Obama administration next month, news reports said Tuesday.
The New York Times said Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose third term will expire end of 2013, had been looking for a successor "with the combination of star power, experience and grit to fill his shoes" and had asked Clinton to run.
The Times and other New York newspapers said Bloomberg, the billionaire founder of the Bloomberg financial data and news provider, urged Clinton to enter the race next year. The Times said, however, that Clinton expressed no interest.
Clinton was a US senator from New York State before running for US president in 2008, but lost the nomination from the Democratic Party to Barak Obama, who was re-elected president for a second term last month.
