LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid offered a ringing endorsement of Hillary Rodham Clinton in the event she runs for president in 2016.

Reid said in an interview with "PBS NewsHour" that he thinks Clinton's work as senator and Secretary of State was remarkable.

He said he had "such admiration" for Bill Clinton's presidency, but thinks the former first lady could top his record and "handle things probably even better" than her husband.

Reid didn't directly answer Woodruff's question about whether he'd like to see Hillary Clinton run. But he said he didn't know of anyone who was a bigger fan of her than himself.
