Hillary Clinton’s propensity to wear pantsuits — and David Letterman’s tendency to riff on them — was one of the major topics on her appearance Thursday on CBS’s “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
She made it the subject of her own Top Ten list — made up of Top Ten campaign promises: “One more pantsuit joke and Letterman disappears.”
Making her 7th appearance on the show, Clinton faced few hardball questions, and instead seemed quite at ease with Letterman.
About the only zinger came when Letterman, in the midst of lobbing softballs, suddenly interjected, “What’s the deal with Senator Craig?” The audience laughed.
Clinton, herself laughing, tried to make a serious face and said, “I think it’s very sad. It’s a very sad story.”
Bill Clinton appears on “The Late Show” next week, but Hillary may have given Letterman fodder. When he asked whether the Constitution allowed the former president to run for vice president, Hillary said, “Apparently not. No. Believe me, he looked into that.”
She did, however, outline her plan for Iraq.
