"I think the biggest loser a week ago was Hillary Clinton," Walker, a possible Republican presidential contender in 2016, said on Fox News.

"She embodies Washington. She embodies that old, tired top-down approach from the government. I think in the states as governors, we offer a much better alternative and I think there's a number of us who would be good prospects out there."

Clinton is the odds-on favorite to win the Democratic nomination for president in 2016 if she chooses to run, and Walker greatly enhanced his chances for a White House bid last week when he won reelection.

"Not only do I care about this great state, I care about this country," Walker said, echoing a line from his appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

After previously signalling he needed more financial support in his race, Walker also played down any feud with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA), and a possible presidential rival.

"In the end, Chris and I are good friends," Walker said. "He came in a week out and campaigned with me. The RGA played strong in my race. The difference was there's just a lot more money than anybody ever expected from the unions."
