Her first stop since returning was an appearance on the Today show Friday, when she was asked about rumors that she would run for a seat in the New York Senate.

"Do you have aspirations for elected office?” host Matt Lauer asked her.

“I've just gotten home a week or so,” she said. “I'm looking around to figure out what I would do next.”
