Hillary Clinton lists job references for Skimm newsletter

(CNN)Hillary Clinton's job application for president of the United States would have two reference numbers on it: Her husband's and the White House.

In a question-and-answer interview that published on Thursday, the former secretary of state and 2016 candidate told The Skimm -- a popular daily newsletter that boasts a large audience of women interested in news -- that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and her former boss, President Barack Obama, would be her two presidential references.
"Since the job interview is for being the president of the United States, probably my husband, who has been there and knows how hard the job is," she said. "And President Obama who I worked for, for four years. I think calling the two presidents ... makes the most sense."
Since launching their campaign in April, Clinton's aides have tried to make the presidential candidate more relatable to voters, particularly energizing women and young people. They posted her 2016 playlist on Spotify, started a Pinterest page for her and have embraced long-running jokes about her hair and her pantsuits. Thursday's interview with The Skimm is yet another example of that push.
    Founded by Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin, the site and newsletter aims to provide women with "everything you need to start your day."
    When asked about her greatest weakness during the interview, Clinton said, "How much time do we have?"
    "I am impatient and I sometimes come across as impatient, which is not always attractive," Clinton said. "And (I) get really frustrated with people who don't understand what I think it's going to take to make our country great tomorrow just like we were yesterday."
    Clinton told the Skimm that her first meal back at the White House would be anything with "chocolate in it, on it, around it" and that most mornings she only hits the snooze button once.
    Clinton is not the first 2016 candidate to do an interview with the Skimm. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, also vying for the Democratic nomination, and GOP candidates Sens. Rand Paul and Lindsey Graham have all answered some unorthodox questions for the site.
    Sanders said his references would be the 630,000 residents of Vermont.
    And when asked about his greatest weakness, he said he is "not as sociable" as he could be.
    Proof to that point: When Sanders was asked about how he takes his coffee, the senator said: "Do you have many of these questions?"
    Paul told The Skimm there was a 50-50 chance that his wife would give him a good reference. And when asked whether he hits snooze on his alarm, the senator said, "I don't think I have ever hit the snooze button in my entire life. I usually wake up before my alarm goes off, and I am so excited to start the day."
    And when asked for a fun fact about himself, Graham told The Skimm, "I drive a 2005 Crown Victoria with more than 250,000 miles on it."
