A White House lunch between President Obama and Hillary Clinton spurs 2016 presidential campaign speculation. (4:10)

THAT'S GOOD TO KNOW.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

WITHOUT A DOUBT.

FOLKS, YESTERDAY PRESIDENT OBAMA

GAVE A MAJOR ABOUT THE ECONOMY

AT AN AMAZON DISTRIBUTION

CENTER.

I THINK HE CHOSE AMAZON BECAUSE

THEY'RE GOING TO START EQUIPPING

CONGRESSMEN WITH A "BUY NOW"

BUTTON.

I WASN'T REALLY PAYING THAT MUCH

ATTENTION TO THE SPEECH BECAUSE

TODAY'S PRESIDENT IS YESTERDAY'S

NEWS.

PARTICULARLY IF YOU'RE WATCHING

A RERUN OF THIS SHOW.

NOW, LIKE EVERY OTHER

JOURNALIST, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT

WILL HAPPEN IN 2016.

WELL, YESTERDAY WE GOT OUR FIRST

CLUE WHEN HILLARY CLINTON

STOPPED BY THE WHITE HOUSE.

>> SHE SPENT ABOUT TWO HOURS IN

THE WHITE HOUSE.

THE QUESTION IS, WHAT DID THEY

TALK ABOUT?

>> COULD IT HAVE SOME INKLING OF

WHAT COULD TAKE PLACE IN 2016?

>> JUST LUNCH OR IS IT CAMPAIGN

2016 JUST GETTING STARTED?

WHY PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HILLARY

RODHAM CLINTON HAVING A PRIVATE

LUNCH TODAY AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

>> Stephen: THE WHITE HOUSE!

AT THE (SING SONG N) WHITE

HOUSE.

WHAT COULD IT MEAN?

PING, PING.

WE DON'T KNOW.

BUT A TOTAL ABSENCE OF FACTS HAS

NEVER STOPPED CABLE NEWS BEFORE.

REMEMBER, WE'RE THE ONES WHO

BROKE THE STORY THAT THE ROYAL

BABY WAS EITHER A BOY OR A GIRL.

AND WE WERE RIGHT.

SO WE WERE ALL READY WITH OUR

CRACK ANALYSIS IN THAT FOR THE

MOST PART WE PULLED IT OUT OF

OUR CRACKS.

>> THE PRESIDENT DOESN'T HAVE TO

PUT ANYTHING ON HIS SCHEDULE.

PUTTING THAT WE'RE HAVING LUNCH

WITH HILLARY CLINTON ON THE

SCHEDULE CLEARLY SAYS SOMETHING.

>> Stephen: YEAH, SOMETHING.

DON'T KNOW WHAT THOUGH.

AND NEITHER DOES TOURE.

HE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT HIS

LAST NAME IS.

STILL, A GREAT STORY.

BUT IS THERE ANY INFORMATION

ABOUT THIS LUNCH?

>> DID IT AL FRESCO, THAT MEANS

OUTDOORS.

>> Stephen: OKAY.

OUTDOORS.

OUTDOORS.

GOT THAT.

AND, OKAY AND I'M BEING TOLD

DOORS MEANS BIG HOUSE WITH NO

WALLS AND SKY CEILING.

WE'RE GETTING SOME PLACE.

WHAT ELSE DO WE KNOW?

>> THE PRESIDENT IN SHIRT

SLEEVES.

>> THEY ALSO LET US KNOW THAT

THEY HAD GRILLED CHICKEN AND

PASTA.

>> YOU COULD SEE IN THE PICTURE

SOME SALAD.

THERE WERE NO DRINKS IN THE

PICTURE SO WE DON'T KNOW WHAT

WAS SERVED AS A BEVERAGE WITH

THEIR LUNCH.

>> IS IT A LUNCH JUST A LUNCH?

WHAT'S GOING ON.

>> Stephen: YEAH, WHAT'S GOING

ON?

I MEAN, IS A LUNCH JUST A LUNCH?

IF YOU EAT BREAKFAST AT 11:30,

DOES THAT MAKE IT BRUNCH?

WILL THE GRA TEUT BE ADDED

AUTOMATICALLY ON A PARTY OF

EIGHT OR MORE?

WHILE WE'RE ADD IT, COULD IT GET

THE COBB SALAD WITHOUT BOILED

EGG, BLUE CHEESE OR BACON?

OH, AND INSTEAD OF KREUT ONS,

COULD I GET SOME [BLEEP] NEWS?

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

OR IS THAT JUST OFF THE MENU?

IS THAT NOT AVAILABLE?

YOU KNOW WHAT?

YOU KNOW WHAT?

YOU KNOW WHAT?

I DON'T NEED NEWS FROM THE CABLE

CROWD BECAUSE I CAN ANALYZE THE

ENTIRE 2016 CAMPAIGN STRATEGY

THROUGH THIS LUNCH.

FIRST OF ALL, HILLARY'S

CAMPAIGN, IT IS ON TO THE ON.

AND OBVIOUSLY THEY ATE OUTDOORS

TO WOO THE ENVIRONMENTALISTS.

HAD THE JAMBALAYA TO COURT GULF

COAST DEMOCRATS.

PRESIDENT'S ROLED-UP SLEEVES

SAY, "I SUPPORT THE RIGHT TO

BARE ARMS."

BUT THE LACK OF BEVERAGES SAYS

THAT UNDER HILLARY, THERE WILL

BE NO WATER BOARDING, TAP OR

SPARKLING.

AND THE GRILLED CHICKE
