>>> what is trending is bill and hilary clinton . they're here for the annual meeting of the clinton global initiative but all the talk centers around the one age old question, where does hilary get all the colored pantsuits. no, that's not the question. is hilary going to run for president? well, david letterman had a rather unusual way of asking the former president about his wife's political ambitions.

>> if she is running to your knowledge blink twice.

>> i blinked once.

>> i didn't see any blinking. what does that mean?

>> it's hard to tell when he is blinking.

>> well, in an interview in this week's new york magazine she said she was pragmatic and realistic about a run. i interviewed her in october 2011 and she said no, i'm not running.

>> they all say that.

>> until they are.
