Though political observers anxiously await Hillary Clinton's seemingly inevitable presidential run in 2016, others are more interested in the next generation of Clinton family leaders.

Though Bill Clinton thinks his 65-year-old wife would make the better president in the short term, "because she's had more experience," he thinks his daughter, Chelsea, has a very bright future.

But "over the long run, Chelsea, she knows more than we do about everything,” Clinton told CNN's Piers Morgan.

“And there was a time in her childhood when I thought maybe she thought she did when she didn’t, now it’s highly embarrassing because she in fact does. So, I feel like I’m going to school everyday when we have a conversation,” the 42nd president added.

Chelsea has said on various occasions that she would be open to a political career "someday."

For now, Bill said he didn't blame his wife for carefully considering a presidential run.

"Real life is a healthier existence than politics," he said.
