In a scene that would have been hard to imagine during the bruising 2008 primary campaign, President Obama and Hillary Clinton acted like old friends during their joint interview on 60 Minutes last night, the Washington Post reports. Obama thanked his departing secretary of state for her service, but the pair didn't give anything away when interviewer Steve Kroft pressed for answers on a possible Clinton White House bid in 2016.

"You guys in the press are incorrigible," laughed Obama. "I was literally inaugurated four days ago. And you’re talking about elections four years from now." Clinton added, "I don't think either he or I can make predictions about what's going to happen tomorrow or the next year." The wide-ranging interview also touched on foreign policy issues including Benghazi as well as Clinton's health. She said she was doing "great," but with "some lingering effects from falling on my head and having the blood clot." (More Hillary Clinton stories.)
