Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell believes Hillary Clinton will try again for the White House in 2016.

According to a BuzzFeed report, Rendell wrote in his new book "A Nation of Wusses" that he believes Clinton has no interest in another presidential bid at the moment, but will change her mind:

"She is bone-tired — the job of secretary of state is far more grueling than that of the president, with the nonstop traveling, the constant jet lag, and the odd-hours phone calls to accommodate foreign officials' schedules. Still I believe that when she gets some rest and has a chance to reflect on what she wants, the challenges facing the country will be too great for her to resist and she will change her mind."

Rendell, a Democrat, was a strong Clinton supporter during the 2008 election cycle and campaigned hard on her behalf. She soundly defeated Barack Obama in Pennsylvania's primary, 54 percent to 45 percent.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "If she agreed" to another run, Rendell said he would volunteer to be her campaign manager.

Rendell believes Clinton is a "non-wuss," according to CBS.
