Washington: Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is open to an all-female women team, including the Vice President, in the White House next year if she comes to power as the US President, a top official of her campaign said.

"We'll start with a broad list and then begin to narrow it. But there is no question that there will be women on that list," John Podesta, chairman of the Hillary Campaign told Boston Globe in an interview.

Clinton, 68, is yet to be declared a Democratic presidential nominee as the presidential primary is not yet over and she has yet to acquire the number of necessary delegates for become a presumptive nominee.

In order to win the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, a candidate must win 2,383 delegates.

But following her impressive win in New York and given that she is leading in polls in next Tuesday's primaries in the States of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Rhode Island, her supporters and political pundits believe that she is headed towards become the Democratic party's presumptive presidential nominee soon.

Clinton wants "the best person to make the case to the American people," Podesta said.

The interview immediately infused the name of Senator Elizabeth Warren's name as a potential vice presidential pick for Clinton.

Podesta, did not offer any names and said that the campaign is still focused on clinching the nomination during the primaries.
