All the political world may be humming with anticipation over whether or not Hillary Clinton will seek the presidency in 2016, but according to her husband, Bill Clinton, the former First Lady and Secretary of State may have bigger goals in mind. Speaking with Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning, the former President guessed that, if given the choice, his wife would choose being a grandmother over the White House.

From the Huffington Post:


"Do you think she'd rather be -- today, she can do both -- president or a grandmother?" CBS's Charlie Rose asked.

"If you ask her, I think she'd say grandmother, but I have found it best not to discuss that issue," Clinton said.

Clinton said he's "just trying to... live to be a grandfather."

"The rest of it's out of my hands," Clinton said.
