Barbara Walters revealed on her Wednesday night special who topped her list of The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013.
While The Hunger Games beauty Jennifer Lawrence and Wrecking Ball singer Miley Cyrus made her list, it was former Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton that came in at No. 1. Walters says Hillary isn't just the most fascinating person of 2013, but also of the past 20 years. She also points out that this is the only time she's interviewed the politician when neither she nor her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been in office.
The big question on everyone's minds for Clinton: Is she running for president? "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," Hillary, 66, said. "I think we should be looking at the work that we have today."
Though remaining coy, Hillary adds that she thinks it's "important" that there be a female president some day. "It matters. It matters because we have half the population that has given so much to building this country, to making it work, raising children and, of course, I want to see women eventually in the White House," Clinton said. "If you look at my friends and former colleagues, who are now in the Senate, it was the women senators, on both sides of the aisle, who finally broke the fever over the government shutdown and the debt limit. ...They have been working across party lines, and we need more of that."
Do you think Hillary Clinton is the most fascinating person of 2013?
