Barbara Bush talked to People magazine.

The 31-year-old daughter of the former Republican president said she found Clinton “unbelievably accomplished” and would like to see her make a second run for president, even though she couldn't guarantee her vote.

“I don’t know who she’d be running against,” Bush said in an interview to appear in the Aug. 26 issue of People magazine.

Bush, the twin sister of TODAY correspondent Jenna Bush, said she also supports gay marriage and is politically unaffiliated.

The magazine article focuses mostly on Bush’s work as CEO of the nonprofit Global Health Corps, which works in numerous African nations. The organization has also partnered with the Clinton Health Access Initiative and Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move.

“We want results. We work with people doing great work,” Bush said.
