Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has been coy about a White House run in 2016, but this week she gave her strongest indication yet that a presidential title is on her goal list.

Guests at a recent and private gathering in Scotland posed the question to Mrs. Clinton — and her answer, The New York Post reported, left eyebrows raised.

At first, she said: “I haven’t made up my mind yet.” But guests pressed, calling her answer unsatisfactory. Then she added, The Post reported: “Yes, it is unsatisfactory. I’m minded to do it.”
