Clinton: I don’t know what Hillary is going to do

Fareed speaks with former President Bill Clinton about his wife Hillary's time as secretary of state, her approval ratings and whether she is likely to run for president herself. Watch the full and exclusive interview on “Fareed Zakaria GPS” this Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1p.m. ET on CNN.

When you look at her poll numbers, can any other Democrat even get into the race?  I mean, how would you raise money when you have… I don't think I've seen numbers like this, close to 70 percent Democrats say they would vote for her.

Well, I think partly that’s because she served well as secretary of state, and because people across the political spectrum finally got to see her the way those of us who know her see her.

And, you know, when I was president and she, like me, was subject to a long line of relentless criticism, and she did in the Senate.  And she made a lot of friends in the Senate among Republicans as well as Democrats.  People in New York liked her across the political spectrum. But it was the first time the country had ever gotten to see her as somebody who just – what you see is what you get. She shows up for work every day, gets stuff done, and is very strong about it.

But these polls don't mean much now.  We're a long way ahead.  I think she would be the first to tell you that there is no such thing as a done deal, ever, by anybody. But I don't know what she's going to do.

    I have the utmost respect for Bill and Melinda Gates. Their philanthropy is absolutely astounding. Everyone should go to Foundation's web site and just look at the overwhelming amounts of money being donated to good causes. I think it would be incredible if Bill and Melinda were to run the country.

      Good stuff Jal, let us know if the doc says you're human. Just kidding. And letting that flamer DFGSDFGSDFG45623452345 know that we're still very interested in reading other people's comments despite his splattering voluminous amounts of horse manure about the place.

    America is the root of all terror. America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.
    In 1953 America overthrow Iran's democratic government Mohammad Mosaddegh and installed a brutal dictator Shah. America helped Shah of Iran to establish secret police and killed thousands of Iranian people.
    During Iran-Iraq war evil America supported Suddam Hossain and killed millions of Iranian people. In 1989, America, is the only country ever, shot down Iran's civilian air plane, killing 290 people.
    In 2003,America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and 4,000,000+ Iraqi people were displaced.
    Now America is a failed state with huge debt. Its debt will be 22 trillion by 2015.

    No, no, no, no hillary – no more. She did not perform according to international standards, damaged US image, and destroyed many families, not only in USA but also abroad. Her politics is not unbiased and not trustworthy.

    Perhaps Bill and Hilary Clinton should focus on their daughter, Chelsea and groom her for the presidency. She is young and has loads of energy. Hilary might be too old for the job.
