Obama: Hillary Clinton ‘doesn’t have to measure’ White House drapes

Obama said he was the one who proposed the White House lunch, adding that the two had become “genuinely close” during his first term.

Obama also noted that Clinton seemed relaxed as her four years as secretary of State came to a close.

“She had that post-administration glow,” the president told Leno. “You know, when folks leave the White House, like two weeks later they look great.”

Clinton is the strong favorite for the 2016 Democratic nomination, but has yet to declare interest in launching a presidential bid.
