Roundtable: Could a Hillary Clinton run hurt Obama?

(CNN) - They went from fierce opponents to fast friends, from hypothetical 3 a.m. phone calls, to "You hang up." "No, you hang up." At least on camera, that is.

"I consider Hillary a strong friend," President Barack Obama told CBS' "60 Minutes" in a joint interview with Hillary Clinton in January. Clinton practically finished his sentence.

"I mean, very warm, close. I think there's a sense of understanding that, you know, sometimes doesn't even take words," said Clinton.

Telepathy aside, can the bond between Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton survive if she makes a run for office? Or would a candidate Clinton inadvertently turn the current President into a lame duck before his time?

CNN political contributor and Republican strategist Kevin Madden, co-host of CNN's "Crossfire" Van Jones, and associate editor for The Hill A.B. Stoddard discuss.
