Win McNamee/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — It’s not the first time she’s said she’s leaving government service after her current job, but Secretary of State Hillary Clinton definitively said Thursday that she wants out of politics.

During a town hall meeting with State Department employees Clinton said she is ready to step off “the high wire of American politics.” She said she’s paying no attention to the battle for the Republican presidential nomination and hasn’t watched any of the debates.

It is not clear what she would do after leaving the Obama administration, but Clinton’s departure from public life would end a husband and wife dynasty in American politics after Bill Clinton’s two terms as president, her time as a senator from New York and her tenure as secretary of state.
