There were no veiled questions of her political aspirations, and thus Hillary Clinton made no mention of whether she'll run for office again in a lecture at Colgate University in Hamilton Friday evening.

It was the former secretary of state and U.S. senator's second speech in central New York in three weeks. She spoke at Hamilton College on Oct. 4. It's been part of a series of lectures Clinton has been giving, on college campuses and to private functions.
