Hillary Clinton told “Extra” on Monday night she would consider appointing first lady Michelle Obama to a Cabinet position if she wins the presidential election next week.

In an interview with Tracey Edmonds, the Democratic nominee said Obama would be a fitting member of her administration.

“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. 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.

The former secretary of state was joined by singer Jennifer Lopez in the interview. The Latin-pop singer has endorsed Clinton for president and took the stage in Miami for a Get Out the Vote concert before the duo’s interview with Extra.

“Not only is she the most experienced person for this job and she knows this country — she’s lived it on so many different sides already,” Lopez said.
