Hillary Clinton says she will NEVER leave politics because ‘our democracy is at stake’ and ‘we saw that on the screen with the insurrection’ as she pushed her new fiction book about a secretary of state
- ‘I will never get out of the political game,’ Clinton, 73, said Monday morning on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’
- She said she wouldn’t go to the office anymore
- Clinton made the comments ahead of the release of her new book, ‘State of Terror’
- The novel is about a secretary of state who works under a president who politically opposes them to prevent terrorists from getting their hands on nuclear weapons.
Hillary Clinton said Monday she will never leave politics because she believes “democracy is at stake.”
“I will never get out of the political game,” Clinton, 73, said Monday morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“I’m not going to run for anything, but I really feel like our democracy is at stake for many reasons…some we’ve seen on screen with the uprising, some are about Facebook creating a world of disinformation rather than one we can agree on what the facts are. I’m really concerned,” said the former secretary of state, first lady, senator and 2016 presidential candidate.
Clinton’s comments come a day before the release of her new book “State of Terror,” a fictional novel about a Secretary of State who works for a president who is a “political enemy” and how a series of attacks give rise to an “international chess game” to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists.
“I am concerned that we are facing a lot of really serious problems that are not getting the attention they deserve,” Clinton said said.

Clinton co-wrote ‘State of Terror, to be released Tuesday’ with mystery writer Louise Penny
“So as you know from this book, it’s a lot of fun, it’s also a serious problem for terrorists to gain access to nuclear weapons.”
Clinton co-authored the book with Canadian author Louise Penny.
Clinton’s New Novel Comes Out Tuesday
Clinton said her experience as Secretary of State from 2009-2013 informed the character, but it was “really inspired” by her late friend Ellen Tauscher, who served as a Democratic congressman from California for 13 years and then became Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Gun Control. . Tauscher passed away in 2019.
The book examines the ‘volatile and Byzantine politics’ of Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and even the ‘Russian mafia’.
Clinton said the president’s “ego-driven and uninformed” character, as he describes in the book, was inspired in part by President Trump.
In 2019, Clinton co-wrote a book with her daughter Chelsea entitled “The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.” In 2017 she published a book about her election loss in 2016, ‘What Happened’.
Earlier this year, Clinton was appointed chancellor at Queen’s University in Belfast, Ireland and regularly releases new episodes of her podcast ‘You and Me Both’.
She is also slated to executive produce “The Woman’s Hour,” an upcoming drama series about women’s suffrage in the United States.
