Former Democratic presidential nominee, secretary of state and self-confessed hair icon Hillary Clinton has left the door open to a possible 2020 presidential run, saying: "I'd like to be president".

Though let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

When asked by Recode’s Kara Swisher during a Q&A if she wanted to run again, Clinton responded:

No.

Before stating that she did feel very prepared for the job of reuniting America and reaffirming America’s place in the world.

Clinton continued by saying that "there’s going to be so much work to be done" after a Democrat "hopefully" wins the next presidential election.

She said:

The work would be work that I feel very well prepared for having been in the Senate for eight years, having been a diplomat in the State Department.

In the run up to this November’s midterm elections, Clinton has increased her media presence, criticising the Republican Party and president Trump.

Clinton aide Philippe Reines recently said there is a slim chance that she will run again in 2020.

He told Politico:

She’s younger than Donald Trump by a year. She's younger than Joe Biden by four years. Is it that she’s run before? This would be Bernie Sanders's second time, and Biden’s third time. Is it lack of support? She had 65 million people vote for her.

When Politico asked Reines is Clinton is running, he said the chances were: "not zero".
