In the battle between Donald Trump and Ben Carson, Hillary Clinton isn’t choosing a side.

“I’m going to leave that to the Republicans,” Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, told Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “If I say one or the other, it might influence some people, and I don’t want to have any influence on it.”

Asked by Colbert if she could “picture either one of those guys in the office,” Clinton played coy: “I can picture them in some office,” she said.

Clinton was the fifth potential presidential candidate to appear with Colbert, following Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Bernie Sanders, and Ted Cruz. She discussed a wide array of policies with Colbert, and assured the host that it wasn’t in her interest to build “the Clinton administration 2.0,” a reference to her husband, former president Bill Clinton.

“I’m not running for my husband’s third term,” Clinton said. “I’m not running for President Obama’s third term. I’m running for my first term.”
