Hillary Clinton gave vacationing political reporters checking their emails a brief panic attack Tuesday, sending an email blast through the Clinton Foundation with the subject line: "Announcement."
Luckily for them, the "announcement" had nothing to do with her plans for 2016 — it was donation-matching offer for the foundation's benefactors.
"In my family, we're celebrating our first holidays with a beautiful new granddaughter," Clinton wrote. "We're also celebrating the generosity and commitment of our incredible Clinton Foundation family — and that means you."

"As we look ahead to an exciting new year, there's so much more to do together — solving problems and seizing opportunities faster, better, and at lower cost," the former secretary of state continued. "But we can't do it without you. That's why Bill, Chelsea, and I will triple every $1 donated to the Clinton Foundation before the end of the year, up to an additional $100,000."

Clinton has said repeatedly that she is undecided about running for the presidency, despite the air of inevitability — real or imagined — surrounding her potential candidacy.
According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released earlier this month, 50 percent of American voters could see themselves supporting Clinton in the 2016 presidential race, but 48 percent could not — making her "the early presidential front-runner — but barely."
