US First Lady, Michelle Obama, on Thursday showered praises on Hillary Clinton and said as Secretary of State she is doing an outstanding work in the Obama Administration.
"I think it's fair to say that this woman (Hillary Clinton) set the standard in her last post in a presidential administration and she is once again setting a terrific standard doing outstanding work as the Secretary of State for the Obama administration," Michelle said at an award ceremony at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department.
As she stood up to address the ceremony held to present awards to women from across the globe, Michelle said. "Let me thank my dear friend, Senator -- Secretary Clinton." The entire audience burst into laughter and there was a round of applause, as she said: "I almost said, "President Clinton."
Michelle thanked Clinton for having helped her in settling in Washington. "Let me thank you for your friendship, thank you for your support, and thank you for your indispensable advice in getting me through this first year and helping me figure out how to get my family settled in our new life in DC".
