(CNN) - Hillary Clinton responded to Sen. Rand Paul's recent argument that Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky is a liability to Democrats as well as a potential White House run by Hillary Clinton.
In an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer that aired Monday night, the former first lady was asked about his remarks.
"He can talk about whatever he wants to talk about," Clinton responded. "And if he decides to run, he'll be fair game too."

Paul, a Kentucky Republican, has said this year that former President Clinton's history is a major splinter in the eye for Democrats as they've argued that the GOP is waging a war on women.
"They can't have it both ways. And so I really think that anybody who wants to take money from Bill Clinton or have a fundraiser has a lot of explaining to do. In fact, I think they should give the money back," he said in an interview with C-SPAN.
"If they want to take position on women's rights, by all means do," Paul continued. "But you can't do it and take it from a guy who was using his position of authority to take advantage of young women in the workplace."
In an interview with CNN's Mark Preston, Paul said last month that Bill Clinton "harassed people."
“He was sued multiple times for it, so yes, I think what he did was absolutely inappropriate," he continued. "Is that being a predator? I don’t know how you want to define it but the thing is, most people would say that it’s contemptible.”
Paul's wife, Kelley, said in a Vogue article last year that if Hillary Clinton becomes the next president, Bill Clinton's history with Lewinsky "should complicate his return to the White House, even as First Spouse."
Asked on "Meet the Press" in January if Bill Clinton's past should be a consideration in a potential bid by Hillary Clinton, Paul said he's "not saying that," but "sometimes it's hard to separate one from the other."
As Paul considers a White House bid of his own, he has taken repeated shots at Clinton over her handling of the 2012 terror attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi while she was secretary of state.
A Washington Post/ABC News poll released Sunday indicated that if the election were held today, Hillary Clinton would best Paul, 53%-43%, among registered voters nationwide in a hypothetical matchup.
