Janet Jackson Backs Hillary Clinton for president

US pop superstar Janet Jackson hopes Hillary Clinton will become the first woman president of the United States.

"Hillary Clinton as president -- that would be great," Jackson said in an interview with German press agency DPA Monday. "Then she could show all those people who wouldn't trust a woman with such a job."

Jackson, who is currently promoting her new album "20 Y.O.", declined to criticise US President George W. Bush directly, saying only: "I am not satisfied with the situation in this world. I hate war."

New York senator Clinton, the wife of former US President Bill, last week said she hoped the United States was ready for a female president and came as close as ever to revealing that she was planning to run for the White House, telling Americans to "stay tuned".

She consistently tops polls of voter preferences for a Democratic presidential candidate for 2008.
