(CNN) - 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.
Happened by chance to be channelled in on that station.
Seen it, Heard it and Channelled On !
Loved it! She is a lovely woman with grace, heart, strength and an obviously lively spirit. I pray for her success...
Very funny...it was fun seeing Hillary having fun.
Hillary has been Xerox'ed!
Obama '08 – one of a kind
Good job, Hillary. You were great!
The obama and Tim Russert character need alot of work, they don't look and sound like both of them.
I absoulutly love her...
Great to see Hillary unwind and poke a little fun at herself. I thought she did a great job. But, man, is that the best Obama SNL can come up with?
It is so disgusting to see SNL's racist cartoon on Obama. I don't know when you are going to admit that there is a biased approach in media coverage in favor of clintons legacy.
Shame on you SNL.
I want this woman to be our president! She was great in the Saturday night skit. If only everybody can see her as she was last night.
I admit it was Hillary's funniest moment on TV, she did better than i expected. But i don't see how a funny 2 minutes on saturday night live makes her a better candidate for president. It doesn't change anything and it doesn't help her with important demographics.
Monday night on Daily Show should be more of the same.
I love how fun this was
I watching it to the end and the ending of this episode had a great one with Major Guliani
The guys does an awesome job with impersination Obama...lol their nearly Identical !!!!
Wasn't this where Guliani and Huckabee spent all their time once it was obvious that they could not win?
Why don't we ask her if she is comfortable and do she need a pillow?
what would have been awesome is if Obama would have trumped her by walking in a few seconds after she did.... anything for free face time!
I would have liked to see her facial expression....
I am disappointed in SNL. I have been a fan since its inception and have appreciated its humor even when it was used against those I supported. However, last night SNL crossed the line, when its "humor" was used as an endorsement of Clinton. SNL is no longer funny to me. I will now avoid the show that has captivated me for over thirty years.
A politician with 35 (sic!) years of experience needs SNL's help againt Barak Obama... boo hoo. Can we drop her and move on to the real election please – Obama '08
As much as I dislike her politics, I actually thought she did a great job on SNL last night. It wont change my vote, but I was less cynical of her if only for a few minutes.
I saw it, it was great!
Glad to see Hillary had the opportunity to share her great sense of humor with many who had never had a glimpse her lighter side. What an amazing woman. She is intelligent, witty, warm and very strong.
It's nice to see and hear her positives on the air. If one only watched cable and TV news you would think she didn't have any. The wisecracks that have been uttered about her by the pundits really stink. Those things would never be said about a man. It is about time that the so called journalists realized it is not just an all boys club. There are lots of women out here and we vote too.
I suspect that a sense of humor and a very thick skin are an absolute necessities if one opts for a political career.
Thats enought rambling on my part. I haven't felt that someone was so right for the office of president in a very long time.
