Former president Bill Clinton says he doesn't yet know if spouse Hillary Rodham Clinton will seek his old job in 2016.
In an interview on CBS' Face the Nation, Clinton did indicate that Mrs. Clinton plans to leave her job as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before making any decisions on a new political future.
"She wants to take some time off," Clinton said. "Kind of regroup. Write a book."
Bill Clinton also said of Hillary Clinton: "I think we ought to give her a chance to organize her life, and decide what she wants to do. I just don't know."
Hillary Clinton, of course, sought the presidency in 2008, but lost the Democratic nomination battle to Barack Obama.
Mrs. Clinton has been in national life for two decades, her husband noted, including stints as first lady and senator from New York state, as well as presidential candidate and secretary of State.
The former president Clinton made clear he thinks his wife would be the most qualified presidential candidate, saying he has never met "a better public servant" than she is.
"It's her decision, her life," Bill Clinton told CBS. "But whatever she decides, I'll support it."
