Hillary Clinton, the twice-failed presidential candidate presumed to be on the verge of announcing her third run for the White House, has "never even been tempted" to have a lesbian affair.

"He was so handsome," Hillary said of her former love interest. "He looked like a Greek god."
Stern expressed amusement at Hillary's giddy description of the strapping lad, at which point Hillary interjected: "Well, contrary to what you may hear, I actually like men."
Stern responded by asking Hillary to "raise your right hand" and swear she'd "never had a lesbian affair." Hillary emphatically denied the charge—perhaps a little too emphatically, but that is for the experts to decide.
"Never, never, never," Hillary said. "Never even been tempted, thank you very much."
"Unbelievable," Stern replied.
Hillary's efforts to boost her heterosexual credentials come as the field of Democratic presidential candidates is beginning to contract ahead of the Iowa caucuses in early February, while former vice president Joe Biden's status as the "frontrunner" looks as tenuous as ever.
Reporting on Hillary's political ambitions indicates that she has not ruled out another run for president in 2020. Her former aide, Philippe Reines, recently suggested that Hillary "might be the best person" to beat President Donald Trump, despite her failure to do so in 2016.
