PPAULO,

I agree with you! Let me just make a small observation (I hope you don't mind). The verb "to consider" is usually followed by a gerund. Therefore, the sentences could be rewritten as follows:

She is considering running for the White House.
She is considering giving it a try.

Regards,
Tiago
