President Obama said he expects former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to “do great” as she gears up for a possible 2016 presidential campaign.

“If she’s her wonderful self, I’m sure she’s going to do great,” Mr. Obama said in an interview for NBC’s “Today” program.

As Mr. Obama’s former secretary of state, Mrs. Clinton has been an ally of the president after the two slugged it out in a contentious battle for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.

Mr. Obama delivered one of the more memorable lines during that campaign when he told Mrs. Clinton that she was “likable enough.”

“He’s very likable — I agree with that,” Mrs. Clinton said during a January 2008 debate when asked about her likability compared to Mr. Obama’s. “I don’t think I’m that bad.”

“You’re likable enough, Hillary,” Mr. Obama quipped.
