DES MOINES, IOWA - Hillary Clinton hasn't said whether she's running for president, but she's already getting the endorsement of her former colleague, New York Sen. Charles Schumer.

In a speech at a major Democratic Party dinner in Iowa Saturday, Schumer urged Clinton to run for the Oval Office.

He told the crowd in the early caucus state that Clinton was far and away the most qualified, and that she would make the best candidate to beat the Tea Party.

"Twenty-sixteen is Hillary's time. Run, Hillary, run!" Schumer said. "If you run, you'll win, and we'll all win."

The former secretary of state and former first lady has given no indication yet about a possible run in 2016.

She has made limited appearances since stepping down from her State Department duties in February.
