By Erica Albanese,

Hillary Clinton spoke in front of a group of college students Saturday, stating that she was concerned about the direction of where the United States is headed. She hinted she is still deciding whether or not to participate in the 2016 presidential campaign.

During the Clinton Global Initiative University conference at Arizona State University, the former Secretary of State was asked a question alluding to her role in the next presidential campaign.

"If you don't represent women in politics in America as a future president, who will?” a student in the audience asked, CBS News reported.

Clinton stood on stage with her daughter Chelsea and former president Bill Clinton, while comedian Jimmy Kimmel conducted the discussion.

“Look, I am very much concerned about the direction of our country,” she replied. “It’s not just who runs for office, but what they do when they get there and how we bring people together and particularly empower young people so that we can tackle these hard decisions we’ve just been talking about.”

She added, “I’m obviously thinking about all kinds of decisions.”

During the conference, she also spoke about climate change and the importance of environmental issues in our country, The Washington Post reported.

If Clinton does decide to run for president in 2016, she would be the front-runner for the Democratic nomination.
