It's the top job in the country, but how do we really know if a candidate has what it takes to be the commander-in-chief?
Well, we could pay attention to their public platforms and debate discussion, but "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon found a way to make the process more fun when he sat down with Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton Thursday night: a job interview.
Fallon grabbed a clipboard and got right down to it, asking the former secretary of state and current presidential hopeful how she heard about the position.
"Fourth-grade social studies," she said with a smile.
Clinton touted her experience and assured Fallon she had references before getting serious in the mock interview.
"I care about what happens to our country, and it means a lot to me to make sure that we keep producing good opportunities for people, help everybody have a chance to live up to their God-given potential," she said. "There's more we can do, and I want to try to make that happen for everybody."
While Fallon appreciated the eager applicant (whom he dubbed "a chatty Cathy"), what he really wanted to know was: Can she type?
"I can in a pinch!" Clinton told him, also adding that she'd be willing to relocate "for the right job."
But the biggest laugh came at the end of the interview, when Fallon gave a nod to a certain scandal as he deadpanned, "Is there an email address we can reach you [at]?
"You can follow me on Snapchat," she shot back.
