  • But will it be Hillary Clinton?

    Two of the world’s most powerful female forces (a pop superstar and a First Lady) are already showing sisterly support for the USA’s inaugural woman President – whether she is indeed front runner Hillary Clinton, or some other gal.

    Speaking to ABC at the Summit On Working Families, Michelle Obama declared that a female President should be elected “as soon as possible.”

    “I think this country is ready — this country is ready for anyone who can do that job,” she said. “The person who should do the job is the person who is most qualified, and we have some [female] options, don’t we?”

    Mrs Obama did however, conceed that she would “definitely not” ever run for the top spot herself, but would continue with the service elements of her role long after her family leaves the White House.

    Katy Perry, meanwhile, has been offering her support directly to Hillary, tweeting, “I told @hillaryclinton that I would write her a “theme” song if she needs it…”

    Referring to her book, Hard Choices, Hillary tweeted back, “Well that’s not a Hard Choice. You already did! Keep letting us hear you Roar.”

    While it remains to be seen whether Hillary will run in the 2016 US elections, it seems her unique brand of girl power is already gathering momentum.
