Speaking at The 19th Represents Summit on Thursday, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said she would accept a job in a prospective Joe Biden administration.

Asked if she would be willing to serve, Clinton responded:

"I'm ready to help in any way I can, because I think this will be a moment where every American — I don't care what party you are, I don't care what age, race, gender, I don't care — every American should want to fix our country... So if you're asked to serve, you should certainly consider that."

Clinton endorsed Biden in late April, long after all other primary competitors, including rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), had dropped out of the race. In doing so, she used the moment to envision how much better off the country would have been if she had defeated Trump in 2016.

"Just think of what a difference it would make right now if we had a president who not only listened to the science, put fact over fiction, but brought us together, showed the kind of compassion and caring that we need from our president," Clinton said.

Clinton, who is scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week, recently tweeted her support of Sen. Kamala Harris as Biden's running mate.
