Just days after retiring as US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton is back in limelight after launching a mysterious new website that boldly features her in an attention-grabbing photo.

A mass e-mail sent by her husband and former US President Bill Clinton and their daughter Chelsea is adding to the speculation, which urges recipients to "thank Hillary for making the country and the world, stronger, safer and better."

The mail added that 'Hillary has inspired everyone every day. Please take a moment to send Hillary your personal note of thanks', providing a link for fans to do just that.

According to the New York Daily News, when Clinton stepped down Friday after four gruelling years as secretary of state, it was assumed that she would relax and recharge while contemplating her next move.

Her friend Ann Lewis fueled that notion, and told NBC television channel that Clinton would "take some time, put her feet up, take a nap."

The website and e-mail show that Clinton already has given great thought to the future, and that she wants to keep the option open of running for the White House, political consultants said.

The new website emerged with no fanfare.

Visitors to HillaryClinton.com, the remnant of past campaigns, were presented with a link directing them to the new address, HillaryClintonOffice.com, which was registered Thursday, 24 hours before Clinton left the US State Department.

The site also contains a contact form for visitors to fill out -- allowing Clinton to add to her already robust mailing list.

Clinton aides downplayed the site's significance, insisting that it is simply a way for fans and the media to reach her now that she is out of office.

Analysts said that even if Hillary Clinton is inclined not to run again, the e-mail and website are smart politically, the report added.
