Washington - Hillary Clinton says she would be "incredibly humbled and honoured" to be America's first female president.

But she says people are still trying to figure out what that would mean for the country.

The Democratic presidential nominee says that "most people are OK with" having a woman in the White House but "some people are still having questions about it." She was interviewed on The Breakfast Club, a syndicated radio show based in New York. The interview was aired on Wednesday.

Clinton said that while President Barack Obama was the first black president, he "owned his excellence".

She said she hoped if she got elected, people would say: "Hey, she's getting it done."

Clinton was campaigning in Florida on Wednesday with less than two weeks to go before Election Day.
