It's the perennial talk of the political world, but Bill Clinton is less than decisive about the prospect of his wife, Hillary Clinton, running for president in 2016.

“She hasn’t mentioned it to me,” Clinton said of the Hillary 2016 buzz when asked at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s 2013 Fiscal Summit in D.C.

Bill, Hillary 2016?

“I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I know this: that is the worst expenditure of our time,” he said, adding that it's “frustrating” to be talking politics.

“She’s taking a role in the foundation, she’s writing books, she’s having a little fun being a private citizen for the first time in 20 years,” Clinton said.

“We need to be worried about the work at hand right now. All of us do."

"That way, whoever the next president is has an easier set of choices.”

Good point, but still ... since we're on the topic: Hillary in 2016?

According to the New York Post, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo may be bowing out of the 2016 presidential race before it even gets close to starting.

That decision can be summed up in two words: Hillary Clinton.

  • Andrew Cuomo Pic
  • Hill

The paper claims he has whispered to associates that he won't run for the party's presidential nomination in 2016 if the former Secretary of State seeks the White House.

Cuomo has been considered a likely candidate, but allegedly, an administration insider says Cuomo knows and accepts that if Clinton runs, she'll easily win the nomination.

Hillary Clinton fans looking to the stage of NYC’s Lincoln Center for signs of a 2016 presidential bid should probably lower their expectations ... not that they will.

Her speech at the Women in the World Summit was her second speaking appearance this week, reviving rumors that she will again seek the White House.

In 2016. That's Hillary Clinton for you, strong enough to cast a shadow over an election almost four years away, even as she denies any plans to run in it.

“I get all the enthusiasm there is for her to run,” Mo Elleithee, a spokesman for Clinton’s 2008 bid, said. “But my advice to everyone is to calm down."

"If she decides to look at the race, I think she’ll do so at the appropriate time.”

Former Secretary of State and FLOTUS Hillary Clinton has announced her support for gay marriage in a new video for the Human Rights Campaign.

Says the 65-year-old wife of Bill Clinton:

“LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship."

"That includes marriage. That’s why I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law.”

After eight years as First Lady, followed by eight more in the U.S. Senate and four as the nation's top diplomat, Hillary stepped down this winter.

Many consider her the odds-on favorite to seek the Democratic nomination for president a second time in 2016, should she desire to do so.

What do you think: Hillary in 2016?

There have been presumptions that former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will make another White House run come 2016.

She leads a recent 2016 presidential poll (yes, there was one), and given her resume and name recognition at this point, that's not a real surprise.

But this is: Another, even more intriguing idea floating around the web this week is that current FLOTUS Michelle Obama could be her running mate.

“All due respect for President Obama and Vice President Biden, but that would truly be a dream team,” former Clinton spokeswoman Karen Finney said.

A 2016 presidential poll suggests that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton (D) are the ones to beat.

According to a Quinnipiac University survey, Christie edges two fellow Republicans, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.

Christie would also defeat two prominent Democratic candidates, Vice President Joe Biden and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the poll showed.

But in a head-to-head battle with Hillary Clinton - the clear Democratic frontrunner if she runs - Christie would lose by approximately eight points.

President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a joint interview on 60 Minutes last night, exchanging praise and reflecting on the last five years.

It's been quite a ride since 2007.

She was his chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, but on Sunday, the outgoing Secretary of State served as Obama’s chief cheerleader.

The feeling was very much mutual.

Former Republican V.P. candidate Paul Ryan said Sunday on Meet the Press that the nation's fiscal crisis would be different right now under Hillary Clinton.

“Look, if we had a [Hillary] Clinton presidency, if we had Erskine Bowles as chief of staff ... I think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now," Ryan said.

"[But] that’s not the kind of presidency we’re dealing with right now.”

Bowles was chief of staff to former President Bill Clinton, and currently co-chairs the Campaign to Fix The Debt, a bipartisan deficit reduction effort.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton engaged in some heated exchanges Wednesday with U.S. Senators during her testimony about the attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Facing scrutiny from Republicans in particular, Clinton took exception to Ron Johnson (R-WI) and his pointed inquiry into the State Department's initial reports:

Johnson was referring to reports that the September 11, 2012 attack that killed four Americans was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islam YouTube video.

"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans," Clinton responded, raising her voice at Johnson, who continued to interrupt her.

"I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews," Clinton said, her voice hoarse with emotion.

"I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters."
