[Ed. – Fifty CCs of feminism … stat!]
Monday’s Working Families Summit at the White House ended with a sit-down conversation between ABC News’ Robin Roberts and First LadyMichelle Obama. After discussing the various issues facing working mothers today, Roberts asked the first lady when she thinks it will be time for the United States to elect its first female president.
“That should happen as soon as possible,” Obama said, to cheers from the audience. “I think this country is ready. This country is ready for anyone who can do the job,” she said, adding that the election of her husband proved that you don’t need a “particular race or gender or background or socioeconomic status.”
“The person who should do the job is the person who’s the most qualified,” Obama continued, before giving Hillary Clinton a not-so-subtle nod. “And I think we have some options, don’t we?”
“You sure you’re not getting into politics?” Roberts asked. “Because that answer was really good.”
“I am positive,” the first lady replied, confirming a promise President Barack Obama made during an interview last month.
