In this video released by The Clinton Foundation, House of Cards star actor Kevin Spacey calls up former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to see if he can figure out what she is getting her husband, former U.S. President Bill Clinton, for his birthday.

He suggests an elephant because Hillary and their daughter Chelsea have been calling for increased efforts to curb elephant poaching for ivory in Africa.

“This is a very personal decision I will make when I’m ready,” she responds, which is what she says when she is asked whether she will run for the White House.

Then Spacey launches into a discussion of names for Chelsea’s baby like Frank, a reference to Frank Underwood, the conniving South Carolina Democrat he plays in the series, and Claire, his wife on the show who is played by Robin Wright.

Bill Clinton turns 68 on August 19.
