(CNN) – Former President Bill Clinton may have stoked more speculation about his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and her potential run for president.
Asked during a Q-and-A session on Saturday if he'd rather take eight more years as president or complete 16 projects at the Clinton Global Initiative, Clinton said - after a pause - "I would rather keep doing what I'm doing."
"Because I think America will have some very good choices for president," he continued, drawing applause from the audience as they presumably clapped and cheered for his wife.

His comments came in St. Louis at the annual meeting for the Clinton Global Initiative University, part of his nonprofit he runs that gets young people focused on innovations to improve poverty, development and medical care around the world.
The forum ended with Clinton being interviewed on stage by comedian Stephen Colbert, a conversation that will air on Comedy Central's "Colbert Report" Monday evening. Clinton and Colbert took questions from the young audience after the interview.
"I think that, except in unusual circumstances, a two-term limit is a good thing," Clinton continued. He said he wouldn't oppose allowing future presidents to run for a third term not immediately after their second.
"But I would personally rather keep on doing what I'm doing for as long as I can possibly do it, because I think I have learned how to do it, and I'm not sure anybody else would be doing this - whereas I'm quite sure there are going to be lots of talented people who are dying to become president of the United States," he said.
Although recent polls show Hillary Clinton would come out strong against potential Republican rivals should she decide to make another bid for the White House, one Republican senator said Sunday that her supporters shouldn't get their hopes up.
"I think after eight years of Barack Obama, if things don't change, the next Democrat running for president will be in trouble," Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "She will be a formidable candidate. I think her time as secretary of state is mixed. Benghazi is yet to be told completely. Anybody underestimates her on the Republican side would do so at a peril. But yes, she can be beat; anybody can be beat in this country."
And none of them are Republicans!
I think Vince Foster will have something to say about that
Hillary in the White House, Bill could watch over the inturns.
It'll be Christie vs Hillary with Christie winning. I'm not a Dem or a Repub, but this is easy to see. There could be a darkhorse like Obama was, but I highly doubt it.
Hillary will become the first woman American President.
"What difference does it make" .. Talk about a ruling class member that doesn't care about anyone but herself.
Senator Graham is wrong. If Hillary Clinton run, she cannot be beat. The only Repub I know who could even come close is Condoleeza Rice, and she's said many times she's not interested. RUN, HILLARY, RUN!!
Senator Graham, I don't think people are as sour toward Obama as diehard Conservatives are. The rest of the country still remembers the unequivocally disastrous presidency of George W. Bush.
I'll take Hillary over any republican any day of any year of any life.
"I think after eight years of Barack Obama being blocked and blamed for the result the GOP brought on, the next Democrat running for president will be in trouble. The American electorate is easily duped and has a short memory. They'll blame the person in charge no matter what the other party does while they're in office. So we think we can get away with sabotaging the recovery. Indeed we'll use the problems that we cause to help the party."
hillary wants to smell the roses. bill wants whitehouse.
Well she failed at her health care reform. Failed as Secretary of State. Has no experience in business or the economy, has never done anything but live off taxpayers...so she's a good democrat. Maybe she can just sit on Bill's lap and move her lips as he talks.
Yea Bill, but she is not one of them.
these two should just take their millions and go away! Please!
I hope that Mrs. Clinton will run. I will vote for her without any further consideration.
Hillary should run for office in Israel. Everything she did at the State Department was for the benefit of Israel,
not the United States.
Hillary is nothing more than an AIPAC prostitute! She will never be elected!
It would be a surprise if the next democratic nominee was even White. lol
AIPAC ring leader
If would be a surprise if the next Democratic nominee was even White. lol
Hillary would make an excellent president--it is her destiny. I will support her in any way I can.
Bill has the answer and open the envelope please,its Hillary Clinton president of these Unites States as of 2016 ..And quess what republicans you have absolutely no one viable to run against her.. Even your Pillsbury Doughboy Christie ain't got a chance and that's even if your party brings Nathan Sproul out of retirement to do his magical voter fraud like in the Bush years again!!Remember republicans voting laws are a changin and its gonna be harder to do what your republican governors try doing in this last years election because quess what Scott,Walker and the likes of Kasich will all be history and that's just the governors for starts when midterms devastate your party..And remember republicans don't say we didn't tell yah because I and others happily did!!
Think of a President that didnt bulldoze other parties and actually came to the table with a open ear and willingness to put party agendas aside.
Hillary For President
America hasn't had good choices for president in decades.
She needs to rest for a while. Hillary16.
PS: you remember I used to write obama12. Now Hillary16.
Oh, cut the crap with "hinting". Are there any idiots out there who still don't think this witch is gonna run in 2016?
