The next few years might be pretty busy for former President Bill Clinton.

Rumors are swirling that the United States' 42nd president may take on a new role during President Barack Obama's second term - as ambassador to Ireland.

Clinton hasn't made any comments himself about the speculation, but his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, made remarks on Thursday that led political pundits and commentators to believe she was hinting about her husband's future as a diplomat.

Speaking to the media during a trip to Ireland, Clinton remained vague about her husband's future but acknowledged the possibility that Obama may have an appointment in store for him, according to a report from Politico.

"I cannot comment on what President Obama might do in the second term - obviously, it's his decision," she said. "But I would think that my husband will be here many times in the future doing the work that he's been doing without having to have the title of ambassador."

In the meantime, Bill has been helping his wife pay off the last bit of her campaign debt from the 2008 Democratic primary. He sent a message to her supporters with an offer: anyone who pledges money to Hillary's campaign fund before Dec. 6 will be entered to win a chance to spend a day with Bill in New York City.

"There is nothing I enjoy more than good conversation with good people, which is why I've enjoyed it so much whenever we've brought one of Hillary's strongest supporters to New York to spend the day with me," President Clinton wrote. "I'm happy to tell you that I've asked to do it again."

Hillary herself kept mum about her plans for 2016 during the media event in Ireland.

"I'm right now too focused on what I'm doing to complete all the work we have ahead of us before I do step down," she said. "I'm frankly looking forward to returning to living a life that enjoys a lot of simple pleasures and gives me time for family and friends and other pursuits."
