Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on 60 Minutes

Hillary Clinton Plays Coy on 2016 Plans

"I think Hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had," President Obama told 60 Minutes recently — but might she have even bigger plans? Before America's top diplomat, Hillary Clinton, exits the state department for a much-deserved break from public service, she and the president sat down for the interview, which aired Sunday. In this clip, the two top Democrats praise each other for their hard work and discuss how they became close colleagues after a tough primary campaign in 2008.

Unsurprisingly, the topic of 2016 also came up. For his part, Obama reportedly said, "I was literally inaugurated four days ago. And you're talking about elections four years from now." Hillary, too, neglected to take the bait, but she did leave the option open. Hillary said, "You know, look, obviously the president and I care deeply about what's going to happen for our country in the future. And I don't think, you know, either he or I can make predictions about what's going to happen tomorrow or the next year." I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
