Did Michelle Obama just endorse Hillary? She ‘wants a woman president ASAP’

A woman should be president “as soon as possible,” Michelle Obama said Monday, making some wonder if she was endorsing herself.

In an interview at the White House Summit on Working Families, ABC’s Robin Roberts asked the first lady when a woman should be elected as president.

“That should happen as soon as possible,” Obama said to roaring applause. “And I think this country is ready for anyone who can do the job.

“What we have learned is that the person who can do the job doesn’t have a particular race or gender or background or socioeconomic status,” she continued. “The person who should do the job is the person who is the most qualified, and I think we have some options, don’t we?”

The answer was not exactly an endorsement of Hillary Clinton, who has yet to officially announced her candidacy.

“You sure you’re not getting into politics? Because that answer was really good,” Roberts said.

“I am positive,” the first lady said, but her body language may have said more than her words.
