Former President Bill Clinton told a Chinese audience on Monday that he hopes to see a female president in his lifetime, but he has no idea whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will run in 2016.
“I hope we have a woman president in my lifetime, and I think it would be a good thing for the world as well as for America,” Clinton said, according to AFP.
“But I do not know if she’s going to run, and there is no such thing as a sure thing in politics," he added.
Clinton was asked if he saw himself as the future First Husband.

“If I knew the answer to that, I couldn’t say,” he said. “But I can give you an honest answer: I have no idea.”

“If that’s what she wants to do, I will support her,” Clinton said. “But if she decides for whatever reason she doesn’t, I will support that.”
“It’s very interesting for us; we still feel young and we still feel healthy,” he said.
