(CNN) – Former President Bill Clinton left the door open to his wife Hillary Clinton running for office again, despite the current secretary of state's repeated insistence she will not seek the presidency in the future.
"I believe she's being absolutely honest with you when she says she doesn't think she'll go back into politics," Clinton said in an interview that aired Monday on ABC's "Good Morning America." "But if she comes home and we do this foundation stuff for the rest of our lives I'll be happy. If she changes her mind and decides to run I'll be happy."

Clinton said Secretary Clinton plans to "come home and decompress and relax" after serving as chief diplomat, a post she has repeatedly said will be her last role in public service.
The former president unsurprisingly predicted the incumbent president will win re-election by a significant margin.
"I think that his argument will be we put a floor under the recession and kept it from becoming a depression," Clinton said. "We have begun to dig our way out. I think that's he's going to win handily and I have for a long time."
He also compared and contrasted the attacks he endured during his first presidential run in 1992 to those lobbed at Romney.
"Mine was just one long character attack, but we never had to change what we were saying from the primary to the general," Clinton said. "The problem Gov. Romney has is his character attack was you don't really know what he believes- he did this, he says that."
