Hillary Clinton: I’m Not Interested in VP Job

Hillary Clinton on war diplomacy: Talking is better than fighting 6:24

Hillary Clinton wants to be the first female president, but she says she's NOT interested in the White House's second slot.

Asked by NBC's Savannah Guthrie if -- "hypothetically speaking" -- she'd consider serving as vice president, Clinton laughed and offered a short answer: "Hypothetically speaking, no."

Asked if she would consider a female running mate, Clinton said that the qualifications of her pick matter more than the person's gender.

"The most important choice is if something happens to the president, do you have full confidence that that person will step right in and do a great job for the country," she said. "That's the most important thing to me and it does not matter who that person is if that's what I believe about him or her."

And she reiterated what she's said before: She does not think husband Bill Clinton is eligible for the job.
