US Presidential polls: Hillary Clinton is open to having Michelle Obama in Cabinet

Washington: 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 elections.

"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 said while speaking 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 in response to a question on having the First Lady in her Cabinet.

If she is elected in the November 8 general elections, Hillary Clinton would be the first women president of the United States.

Talking further about the current First Lady, Clinton said, "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."

"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 added.
