Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president in 2016, said she "probably won't be asked" to join a presidential ticket, but didn't rule out the possibility. 

Clinton told DeGeneres that she would "never say never" to such a request as she described how she initially did turn down an offer to be secretary of State under President Obama.

"I'm not surprised, but I was still disappointed that not more of the Republicans were willing to take the stand that Mitt Romney took," Clinton said.

"There's no doubt what the president did was wrong," she said, stating that the president put his personal interests ahead of the country's.
