Democratic nominee for United States president Hillary Clinton on Monday said she would consider having current First Lady of the US Michelle Obama in her Cabinet, if voted to power. "...She [Michelle] wants to focus on important issues like girls' education around the world...and I want to be the best partner I can be for whenever she wants to be involved in the government again," Clinton said. "I think she wants to take a break from it, but if she ever wants to do anything like that, I would be the number-one person."

The former secretary of state made the statement during an interview with Extra TV, where she was asked whether she would want Obama in her administration. She appeared for the interview with Jennifer Lopez, before the Latin singer endorsed Clinton for president in Miami at a "Get Out the Vote" concert.

Clinton further praised the First Lady for her "exemplary" work and expressed her appreciation of Obama's support for her during her presidential campaign. "I don't know how anybody could have done what she's done for the last eight years with more grace and a sense of purpose...I'm so appreciative of all the help she's giving me, all the confidence and courage, because it's hard."

Both US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama emerged as Clinton's biggest high-profile supporters, having spoken out against her Republican rival Donald Trump on a number of occasions. The US presidential elections will be held on November 8.
