Dec. 19 (UPI) -- Despite a report that Barbara Walters really wanted to name whistleblower Edward Snowden 2013's "Most Fascinating Person," the annual title has gone to Hillary Clinton, who sat down with the news veteran to discuss her presidential aspirations and the need for a woman in the White House.

“I will look carefully at what I think I can do and make that decision sometime next year,” Clinton said when Walters asked her whether she'd run for president in 2016.

"It's such a difficult decision, and it's one that I'm not going to rush into ... and I don't think we should be looking at the next election," Clinton said. "I think we should be looking at the work that we have today. Our unemployment rate is too high. We have people getting kicked off food stamps who are in terrible economic straits. Small business is not getting credit, I could go on and on, so I think we ought to pay attention to what's happening right now."

The former secretary of state also said that husband Bill Clinton would support her whether or not she decided to run.

"He wants me to do what I think is right," she said.

When Walters asked whether Clinton wanted to see a woman in the White House, she replied "I do think it's important."

"I don't know the exact timing of it or who that might be," noting other successful female leaders around the world.
