Former President Bill Clinton says his wife, who could run for president herself in 2016, is not out of touch and remains committed to the poor and working classes.

Clinton has yet to make an official announcement about whether she will run for president. She is currently traveling the country on a book tour to promote her new memoir, “Hard Choices.”

The tour continues this weekend, when Clinton will be signing books in her hometown at the Chappaqua Library.
