President Obama and Hillary Clinton spent most of their joint "60 Minutes" interview on Sunday heaping praise on each other. But Obama also took a second to laughingly brush off a question about Clinton's political intentions.

Interviewer Steve Kroft noted that the sit-down was exceedingly unorthodox, and wondered whether it had any implications for the 2016 elections.

"I have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement?" he said. "Oh, Steve," Clinton said. "Everyone in this town is talking about it!" Kroft said.

As Clinton laughed, Obama said, "Steve, you guys in the press are incorrigible. I literally got inaugurated four days ago, and you're talking about elections four years from now!"

Clinton added, "As you know, Steve, I am still secretary of state. So I'm out of politics. And I'm forbidden from even hearing these questions."
