Hillary self-deprecates

Hillary Clinton took advantage of the red carpet unfurled for her by Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live last week.

Clinton appeared on SNL last night to poke fun at everything from her cackle-laugh to her struggles on the campaign trail ("The campaign is going very well. Very, very well," the former first lady responded before earning some laughs with a deadpan: "Why? What have you heard?").

I looked for clips of the show but couldn't find any right away ... if you can, please share. I'd love to post them here.

Clinton appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' show last week and will appear on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart tomorrow, according to CNN.

What do you guys think about the candidates making appearances on these comedy shows? Do you think it's helpful? Let me know your thoughts in comments.
