Hillary takes on The Daily Show

Hillary Clinton appears on The Daily Show to promote her book; answers some questions about her political future. Nia-Malika Henderson and Howard Fineman discuss.

Hillary’s office choice: “The fewer corners…the better.”

Hillary Clinton has taken on many tough questions during her book tour, but leave it to Jon Stewart of The Daily Show to really put her to the test.

Clinton came prepared to promote her book “Hard Choices,” but Stewart quickly turned the tables by reminding her that “no one cares, they just want to know if you’re running for President.”

Stewart than proceeded to test Clinton’s suitability for the job as Commander in Chief by administering a “career aptitude test.”  Questions included her commuting preferences, how she feels about creating traffic problems, and her willingness to deal with constant criticism.  But it was her home office preference that led to a “telling” response.

“Do you have a favorite shape for that home office?” asked Stewart.

“The world is so complicated the fewer corners that you can have, the better,” Clinton responded.

Clinton kept plans for her political future under wraps, but did lay out her perspective on democratic gridlock.  She also weighed in on American diplomacy in the tumultuous global climate and how the country needs to return to a narrative of freedom, opportunity and human rights.
