Huma Abedin didn’t rule out a run for political office when asked about that possibility on Monday.
The former top aide to Hillary Clinton was asked on the “Today” show if she’d consider her own run for office after spending years behind the scenes as Clinton’s confidant and with her own estranged husband, Anthony Weiner.
“I am copying Shonda Rhimes. This is my year of saying yes,” Abedin said, referring to the Hollywood heavyweight’s memoir, “Year of Yes.”
“I’m not saying no to anything,” she added.
Co-anchor Savannah Guthrie replied, “Wow. OK, you’re making a little news there again. That was yes.”
“Well, that was I don’t know,” said Abedin, laughing.
Abedin, 45, began working as a White House intern for Clinton in 1996, but her role grew as the former first lady sought various political offices.

Abedin became an aide to Clinton in the US Senate in 2000 and served as her deputy chief of staff when she was secretary of state under President Barack Obama. She also was a vice chairwoman of Clinton’s doomed 2016 presidential campaign.
She wed then-Congressman Weiner (D-NY) in 2010. But a year later, Weiner resigned from the House of Representatives after he was busted sending explicit photos to women. His ongoing scandals also tanked his once-promising mayoral run in 2013.
Abedin’s new memoir “Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds,” out Tuesday, is expected to open up about her close relationship with Clinton as well as the scandals that plagued her marriage.
“This is a whole new chapter for me. I am doing the thing with you, Savannah, that for my entire adult life I was terrified of — which is putting myself out there and being in public,” Abedin said.
