If 2016 doesn't work out for Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state could find a new line of work on the theatrical stage.

During an event in Canada this afternoon, Clinton broke out into an impromptu impersonation of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

While trying to explain the difference between how the United States elects politicians and how other countries do (wink, wink – Russia), Clinton put on a Russian accent and performed a mock conversation she imagines Putin had with himself when deciding he wanted to be president.

The two political figures have never been shy about expressing their dislike for each other.

In June, Putin told French TV Clinton has never been “too graceful” with her comments, but that “it’s best not to argue with a woman.” And in April, Clinton described Putin’s behavior and personality to those she would encounter on an elementary school playground.

Clinton's event in Canada today was her first public appearance of 2015. Although she is widely expected to announce a run for president sometime this spring, Clinton did not address her own political aspirations.

Clinton, instead, focused on addressing the recent attacks in Paris and threat of global terrorism, the economy and the need for improving the middle class standard of living, and even her new life as a grandmother.

The former first lady also repeatedly complimented President Obama. She praised his State of the Union address, backed his decision not to pass new sanctions against Iran, and said he doesn't get "enough credit" for the improving the economy.

"The president has been very successful," Clinton said.
