First lady dances with Jimmy Fallon, jokes about hosting 'Tonight Show'

The Associated Press, Friday, February 22, 2013, 11:12pm (PST)

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama says she's eyeing another job in 2016 and, contrary to speculation, it doesn't involve running for public office.

Find: Who challenged the first lady to a pushup contest?

During her first appearance on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," the host asked her Friday to consider a Michelle-Hillary ticket for president in 2016. The latter is former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who lost the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination to Mrs. Obama's husband. Speculation is rampant that Clinton will run again in 2016.

The first lady replies that she's thinking about "putting my hat in the ring" for the "Tonight Show" when host Jay Leno retires.

Fallon says he has his hat in the ring, too. But when Mrs. Obama asks for his opinion, he suggests he won't challenge her. Says Fallon: "I'm done thinking about it."

Mrs. Obama also danced with Fallon, who was dressed like a woman, as the pair demonstrated "The Evolution of Mom Dancing." Watch below:
