WASHINGTON Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton puts the chances of her running for president again at near zero slightly higher than the chances she gives for becoming Senate majority leader or a Supreme Court justice.In an interview aired Tuesday on “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News Channel, Clinton, D-N.Y., was asked the chances, on a scale of 1 to 10, that she would be the next majority leader in the Senate.”Oh, probably zero,” she said. “I’m not seeking any other position than to be the best senator from New York that I can be.”Being nominated to the Supreme Court?”Zero,” Clinton said. “I have no interest in doing that.”Running for president again?”Probably close to zero,” she said. “There’s an old saying: Bloom where you’re planted.”The former first lady, who was elected to the Senate in 2000 and re-elected in 2006, said she looked forward to working as a senator with a Barack Obama administration.
