Clinton: ‘I’m ready to come out of the woods’

Hillary Clinton spoke at the Society of Irish Women’s 19th Annual St Patrick’s Day dinner in Scranton, Pa., Friday and encouraged people not to let politics divide them.

“I do not believe that we can let political divides harden into personal divides,” Clinton said, according to reporters at the event. “We can’t just ignore or turn a cold shoulder because they disagree politically, we have to listen to each other and learn from each other.”

“I am ready to come out of the woods and to shine a light on what’s already happening around kitchen tables at dinners like this to help draw strength to enable everyone to keep going, that’s the spirit of Scranton,” she said.

The statement that she is ready to “come out of the woods” appears to allude with the viral posts of Clinton being spotted hiking in the woods near her Chappaqua, N.Y., home shortly after the election, which was also the subject of a “Saturday Night Live” skit

It also suggests Clinton, who has remained relatively low-profile since the election, is ready to get back into the spotlight.

Earlier this week it was reported that Clinton is considering a run for New York City mayor.

This is not the first time talk of a Clinton mayoral run has circulated since the former Democratic presidential nominee’s defeat last November.

A Quinnipiac University poll from January found that Clinton would beat current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) if she ran as an independent.
