But if Elected President Would Hillary Clinton Serve?

To be, or not to be, that is the question:

Q: If the President is reelected, do you want to serve a second term as Secretary of State?
A: No.

Q: Would you like to serve as Secretary of Defense?
A: No.

Q: Would you like to be Vice President of the United States.
A: No.

Q: Would you like to be President of the United States?
A: No.

That was an exchange between Hillary Clinton and CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, as reported by Politico.

The truthfulness of Hillary Clinton's answer about whether she would like to be President depends on what the meaning of the word "be" be. If it means would you like to be President at some future date, such as 2012 or 2016, then Hillary may well have been telling the truth. But if it means would you have liked to have been elected President when you ran in 2008, Hillary's answer "no" is undoubtedly false.
