Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton

In a recent interview with Time magazine, former President Bill Clinton recalls a time when current presidential candidate Hillary Clinton thought she'd never be a politician.

While the future secretary of state didn't believe she was fit for the political world, Bill did. In fact, he felt Hillary was so fit for politics that she should move to a big city rather than marrying him.

The former president told Time that he proposed to his future wife three times before she accepted. "[A]nd the first time I said, 'I want you to marry me but you shouldn't do it,'" he revealed to the mag, explaining that he felt she had so much potential that she should pursue a political career in a city like Chicago or New York.

"I'll never run for office. I'm too aggressive, and nobody will ever vote for me," she responded, the former president recalled to Time.

My how time flies!

In June, Hillary shared a moving video clip on her Instagram, "What is a fighter? To me a fighter is someone who won't give up," a voice said as photos of a younger Clinton flash through. The 67-year-old presidential hopeful is shown at work and meeting with various people throughout her career, flying, and finally ending on a profile of Clinton's face, as the H logo flies through to end the clip.
