Bill Clinton's latest turn around the press has journalist asking, "Will Hillary Run?" Find out what the Clintons are thinking.

Former President Bill Clinton can't escape the questions about former Secretary of State Hillary Rodman Clinton's chances for running for president in 2016.

While in Vietnam, President Clinton sat down with CNN's Anna Coren for an interview. And Dan Merica, a journalist for CNN, breaks down the interview in "Bill Clinton: If she runs, Hillary Clinton needs time to craft her message."


The constant interview questions about his wife must be wearing, but he offers a clear endorsement if she chooses to follow the path of presidential candidacy again.

"She is the ablest public servant I have ever worked with, even if she is my wife. She's smart, but she's also uncannily able to move from A to B to C. She gets things done and she is strong, she's just good, she is just really good." But he also cautions that the decision is not his to make.

"But it's a decision that only she can make, and I'm not going to try to jump the gun and if she decides not to do it, I'll be happy too."


And before Hillary can make a solid commitment, she needs "time to think about that and work through" what her latest message and platform will be. "We've reached a point in our life when we think you really shouldn't run for office if you don't have a clear idea of what you can do and a unique contribution you can make and you can outline that."

"When I left the White House and Hillary went into the Senate in New York, I told her, I said, 'For 26 years you have made a lot of sacrifices for my public life. So I'll give you the next 26 years."

If that's through politics, that's fine. If not, that's fine, too. The couple's often faced some hard criticisms for the marriage, but the 67-year-old didn't look upset at the idea of being a First Husband.


"So we are just over a little half way through the second 26 years and whatever she wants is fine with me." He jokingly added that "if I'm still around we will fight about what we are going to do after that."

And the former New York Senator is a force to be reckoned with. She's broken ceilings based on sheer determination.

Merica points out that after serving two terms as a senator, Clinton "became the first first lady to win elected office when she successfully ran for New York's open Senate seat." That clear message on a humanitarianism platform catapulted her to look at a presidency.

On the Democratic ticket, Hillary Clinton ran in the 2008 primaries but fell to Democratic nominee Barak Obama. Obama, of course, became President of the United States and made Clinton his Secretary of State for the first term (2009-2013).

She chose to leave the political arena to fall into more diplomatic roles, especially with the couple's Clinton Foundation and The Clinton Global Initiative, and to simply enjoy leisure time after so long in the politics.


Recently on a book tour for Hard Choices, Hillary Clinton said the couple was dead broke at the end of her husband's presidency. She faced a lot of backlash by the conservative media, and even her own party privately discussed the faux pax. They felt the former politician was out of touch with the constituents.

The former governor of Arkansas used the CNN interview to explain the breakdown.

"Most people would think that being 16 million dollars in debt would qualify as being dead broke." While the number is higher than the federal financial records indicate, he also makes it clear that his immediate transition into speaking engagements was made with family in mind.

Doing press and speaking tours allowed Hillary and their daughter Chelsea the opportunity to be "in public service if they wanted to be."  Being in public service is a Clinton family tradition, given the their foundation and initative. The politicians rarely shy away from discussing humanitarian needs.


And he's not ashamed of what he had to do to help their dreams. In fact, he flatly says, "I don't apologize fo that."

Bill Clinton's honest about the idea of making money, too. "I don't think it's a bad thing to make money. I think it's bad if you live in a system that's rigged against the poor and the middle class."  And throughout his political career and humanitarian service, he's learned there's so much more to public service. "The purpose of politics is to create a system of shared opportunities and shared responsibilities."

It seems like Hillary agrees, as well.

In a 2013 interview with NPR, she set her plans out the table for Michele Keleman. "I don't see myself getting back into politics. I want to be involved in philanthropy, advocacy, working on issues like women and girls that I care deeply about." Perhaps that's changed, but clearly public service without politics seems to be her end goal. "I want to write and speak. I want to work with my husband and my daughter on our mutual foundation interests."

 

And an interview on Charlie Rose on July 17 confirms her earlier decision.


Which is probably why Hillary will have a very strong backer in Bill Clinton if she decides to run for president again. If she sits back and looks around, see her personal message is there: she'll do it. Otherwise, she seems to be content taking diplomatic trips and engagements—in helping those who have no voice.
