Bill Clinton: Hillary needs time before making 2016 choice

Former President Bill Clinton said his wife needs time to think about her message to voters would be is she runs for president in 2016.

Hillary Clinton "really does need some time to think through this,” now that her memoir Hard Choices has been published, he said in an interview with CNN.

"We've reached a point in our life when we think you really shouldn't run for office if you don't have a clear idea of what you can do and a unique contribution you can make and you can outline that," Clinton added. "Now that the book is done, she wants time to think about that and work through it. I think so much of politics is background noise, and we don't need the background noise anymore."

Clinton, who claimed Hillary hasn’t asked him for advice on her 2016 decision, said he would be “fine” with whatever decision she makes after the sacrifices she has made for his career. 

The 42nd president highlighted his wife’s abilities to lead the country.
