The country is ready for a female president, former White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said Monday, although she stressed the candidate being a woman was not her top priority, the Washington Examiner reported.

"I want a candidate who will go out there and earn it," Jarrett said in Washington, D.C. "I think our country is ready for a female president, but you don't have to be a female candidate [to care about issues that matter]."

Jarrett said it was crucial for a candidate to be authentic and to have a clear vision for the country but urged the Democratic field not to "beat each other up," in the primaries, because it could harm the eventual nominee in the general election.

Jarettt was speaking as part of a tour promoting her book, "Finding My Voice: My Journey to the West Wing and the Path Forward."

She recently told BuzzFeed News former Vice President Joe Biden would make a "terrific president," but she was not currently ready to endorse anyone in the crowded Democratic primary, which includes six women candidates.

She encouraged the candidates to "show us what it is that your vision is, but also more importantly or just as importantly, how are you going to execute on that vision. What is it that you have in your talent bank that's going to enable you to deliver on what you say you're going to do."
