Speaking with SiriusXM on Thursday (March 10), Clinton described how she would program her own radio show, if given the chance. The potential first woman president of the United States said it would be a lot of female singers, classic rock and classical music. 

"I'm currently into Adele. That is my go-to voice," Clinton said. "I have such a huge admiration for her skills, her abilities and her personality."
