Hillary Clinton has said she is stepping down as secretary of state when Obama's first term ends in early 2013, but her husband – and former president Bill Clinton – says he doesn't know what that means for 2016.

Bill Clinton says he has no idea if his wife will run for president in 2016.

If Hillary Clinton plans on running for president in 2016, she hasn’t told her husband.

"I have no earthly idea what she'll decide to do," Bill Clinton said Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation."

Hillary, who lost the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama four years ago, has said that she is stepping down as secretary of state when President Obama’s first term ends in early 2013.

Clinton said his wife is superbly qualified to move back into the White House after serving as First Lady, senator and the nation’s top diplomat – but he also said she’s “tired” and needs a break.

“She wants to take some time off, kind of regroup, write a book, I hope we'll be working together,” said Clinton, who runs the Clinton Global Initiative.

"We ought to give her a chance to organize her life and decide what she wants to do. I just don't know," the former president said.

But he said that if Hillary does decide to run, he’ll be at her side.

"I’ve never met anybody I thought was a better public servant,” he said. “Whatever she does, I'm for her first, last and always."

The ex-president is not the only big name Democrat who is watching what Hillary Clinton does.

Gov. Cuomo, who is quietly positioning himself for a 2016 White House campaign, is reportedly uninterested in challenging Clinton.
