(CNN) – Former President Bill Clinton thinks his wife would be a better president right now but in the long term, it's all about his daughter Chelsea.
Clinton was responding to a question from CNN's Piers Morgan about who would be the better President, Hillary or Chelsea.
"Day after tomorrow, my wife because she's had more experience. Over the long run, Chelsea. She knows more than we do about everything," Clinton said.
"I feel like I'm going to school every day when we have conversations."
The full interview will air tonight at 9 p.m. ET on CNN's "Piers Morgan Live."
Chelsea Clinton has taken up a place at the heart of her family's foundation and not unlike her mother's playbook, has declined to give a definitive answer about any future political aspirations while still feeding into continuing media speculation.
Chelsea Clinton still open to running for office
As for the elder Clintons, President Barack Obama's informal "secretary of explaining stuff" once again deflected on another White House run by Hillary Clinton, who has nevertheless taken significant steps towards a 2016 run.
When asked about Hillary Clinton's seeming abundance of energy and political ideas after stepping down as Secretary of State and if he could put America out of its misery waiting for an announcement, Clinton said: "No. But, it should scream to you something else: real life is a healthier existence than politics."
Chelsea would make a better sandwich than Hilary any day of the week
Has this Chelsea person done anything other than profit from the advantages of her family?
Wikipedia doesn't seem to have much on her
Given her Smarts ,Common Sense and Empathy ,I think Michelle Obama would be a far better choice over all others
the clintons just can not be embarrassed! they lie like nobody else (except the current president) and dare you to call them on it. vince foster! rose law firm in DC!!! whitewater! please, no more clintons....or rodhams. hillary's two brothers are corrupt too. look them up.
I am smileing right now as I see the beginning of Hillarys campaign and future congresswoman Chelsa! Its true Chelsa's understanding of politics& policies is more vast than Obama. I think its so perfect..its brillant way to define whats has prevaled in the current D.C. machine.
Chelsea has never worked a day in her life, and has been pampered since the day she was born. She has no idea what it is like to have to earn a living, and she has been protected form all of life's dangers by the secret service since daddy was elected.
She'll make the perfect career politician.
we listened to her in an interview- she is strikingly samrt and thoughtful. who knows.
Woman in California, how exactly does saying someone knows more than you imply that you think you know everything? It's the opposite. How would someone know more than someone who is all knowing anyways?
I'm surprised you can even work a vote machine.
I thought Clinton was referencing Obama rather than Hillary.
Incredible that we've sunk so low that electing a President is just a popularity contest or a social experiment.
We have many brilliant people in our society but we choose people like Bush, Obama, and consider people like Hillary Clinton, Kerry, Palin, Romney, Edwards who are slobs who never did any work or anything that should qualify them for President.
Maybe we should just elect Bieber and Cyrus.
Gotta love nepotism ...
Bill would love Chelsea to stay in "Camelot" and be an insider. If you're not in you are out in the real world where results matter. Inside Camelot it's a royal or rock star lifestyle where perception and contacts matter. No work is required in Camelot.
NO MORE PLEASE THE KENNEDY, BUSH AND CLINTON. USA IS NOT KINGDOM OF AMERICA. I don't think I vote for Hillary because I deeply disappointed with her the answers at the Hearing about lots of questions of Bengazi. I want to advice
to CNN. Please don't be stuck on the Clinton's much.
wow, from a criminal to an airhead
If Democrats did not like Hillary in 2008, why would they like her now?
No more Clintons or Bushes....period.
I want Ted Cruz to win because after four years of this nut running the country the GOP will be effectively dead and we can finally get rid of them.
Chelsea is a real person. Realistically she would make a good president. Politically she would be a horrible one. I don't see her taking bribes to make decisions.
He was asked which would be a better president between the two choices, hiliary or Chelsea. Just because he answered the question doesn't mean she is even going to run or anything. He was only given two choice and answered it to his ability between the two choices. It was a opinion question and isn't fact, he stated his opinion.
Chelsea's CAT would be a better option than Hillary.
First shot across the bow has been fired.. Jenna Bush eat your heart out..
Well in that case: Monica Lewinsky for President.
Well yeah – for one thing Chelsea Clinton is 70 years younger than Hillary!
You would think that we had enough of any particular family forming a political dynasty; however, I guess we have become so punch drunk that we will put up with anything.
These folks really think they are our rulers. Time for the two parties to end.
