Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has said she is open to having First Lady Michelle Obama in her Cabinet if she wins the November 8 polls.

“She’s made it pretty clear she wants to focus on important issues like girls’ education around the world — she and I actually talked about it when we were together in Winston-Salem — and I want to be the best partner I can be for whenever she wants to do be involved in government again,” Clinton told ExtraTv.

“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,” Clinton said responding to a question on having the First Lady in her Cabinet.

If elected in the November 8 general elections, Clinton would be the first women president of the US.

In the last phase of the campaign, Michelle Obama emerged as a top surrogate for her, drawing large crowds in her rallies.

“Well, I don’t know how anybody could have done what she’s done for the last eight years with more grace and more of a sense of purpose but inclusivity...She is such a hugger...We appeared a few days ago together,” Clinton said.

“She’s been an exemplary first lady, and I know how hard that job is...So I feel so close to her and I’m so appreciative of all the help she’s giving me, all the confidence and courage, because it’s hard,” the 69-year-old former secretary of state said.

A letter from the Editor

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers.
