Live from New York, it's Hillary Clintoni.l.cnn.net
Added 2428 days ago in Opinion
cnn.com — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton met her match while appearing on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" to deliver the show's trademark opening line and provide an "editorial response" to a mock presidential debate.

During the opening sketch - which featured SNL actors playing Clinton, rival candidate Barack Obama and the debate moderators - Clinton complimented the performance of Amy Poehler, who regularly lampoons Clinton with her impersonation of the senator from New York.

"I simply adore Amy's impression of me," Clinton said, providing the cue for Poehler to enter the stage, wearing the same two-button brown jacket and sporting Clinton's medium-length, layered hairstyle.

Poehler giddily thanked Clinton for appearing.

"I love your outfit," the identically dressed Poehler told Clinton.

"Well, I love your outfit," Clinton responded, putting her hand on Poehler's shoulder, "but I do want the earrings back."

The quip sparked a hyperbolic cackle from Poehler. Clinton asked, "Do I really laugh like that?" The two jokingly agreed she did.

Though a bit late, I believe these shows make the candidate increase the "likeability" factor, which is leading cause Barack is doing so well these days.

Hillary always had the "likeability" factor--too many people are busy with her so-called "baggage" to see it or admit it. Keep going Hillary!

I bet, the poll results would be different had this poll been done when Obama was on SNL. It does not hurt to do these show at the least.

Intelligent Americans would like substance and leadership over oratory skills. Just because Obama is an excellent motivational speaker, it does not qualify him to run the Country. Hillary is highly qualified for the office she seeks and is HANDS DOWN the person you want when the chips are down. Face it, she was more qualified than Bill was when HE ran for office. We need leadership, not a rock star.
