In an interview with a local TV reporter from Columbus, Ohio, President Obama said it is "a little early" for him to endorse Hillary Clinton, or anyone, competing for the 2016 Democratic nomination.
JERRY REVISH, WBNS-TV: Hillary Clinton wants to succeed you. Do you endorse her?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: It's a little early for endorsements since she just announced yesterday, but here's what I can say. She is talented, tenacious, was a great Secretary of State, she is a friend of mine, and I think she would be an excellent president.
