The cameo comes at 7:47 if you want to skip ahead but the sketch that precedes it is much more entertaining, especially the Williams/Russert impressions and Armisen’s inscrutable Sphinx as the savior of mankind. The ballsy thing to do would have been to put Hillary in a wig and have her play some female reporter, pitching questions at “Hillary” about whether she thinks the press makes too much of her cackle, etc. Instead they went for a lame sight gag of her and Poehler wearing the same outfit — although the droll allusion to the campaign not going swimmingly is amusing. Exit question: Why is a woman facing defeat on Tuesday actually raising expectations?

If you’re pressed for time, skip it and watch the brief second clip with Giuliani instead. “The Florida plan was solid!”
