WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton said today that she and former President Bill Clinton “fully appreciate how hard life is for so many Americans,” seeking to refine remarks she made about the pair being “dead broke” when they left the White House.

The remarks came amid a series of interviews and Clinton’s book tour throughout which the former secretary of state has dropped hints that she’s seriously considering running for president in 2016. She said Republican inquiries over the 2012 attack on Americans in Benghazi gave her “more of a reason” to run. In an interview Monday with ABC News, Clinton said she and husband Bill were “dead broke” at the end of his presidency, with legal bills that dwarfed their income. Republicans pounced, calling her out-of-touch with average Americans who struggle with personal finances.
