I saw it yesterday, and thought it was great.... she did an excellent job, poked a little fun at herself, and came across as human and approachable......

....but the haters won't see it that way, I'm sure.

She's a bit stiff, but then she's not an actor.

Probably accomplished the goal - of making her into a human being. Little could do that better than intentionally contrasting an actual Hillary with a caricature of Hillary.

US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton unveils plan to tighten US gun laws

US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has unveiled proposals to tighten the country's gun laws, pledging to act unilaterally if necessary.
Under the plan, Mrs Clinton would "take administrative action" to require high-volume gun sellers to conduct background checks on gun sales, the same rule that gun stores are bound by.
Between 20 and 40 per cent of all arms sales transactions occur without such screenings, a major loophole in federal law, Mrs Clinton said.
She threatened to remove the "unique" legal immunity that protects gun manufacturers and dealers against law suits, and would boost funding for more inspections of gun stores, aggressive enforcement of existing law, and punishment of dealers who break the law.

If elected, Mrs Clinton said she would push Congress to prohibit domestic abusers, including stalkers, from purchasing guns.
She also proposed banning persons required to undergo treatment for serious mental illness from buying firearms.
Mrs Clinton's announcement follows last week's mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-10-04/oregon-shooting-gunman-details-of-shootout-revealed/6825896), Oregon, which left nine people dead.
"How many people have to die before we actually act, before we come together as a nation?" Mrs Clinton asked at a community college in Manchester, New Hampshire.

She said her proposals were not new: "There's nothing unique about them, other than I am so determined to do everything we possibly can."
Mrs Clinton's threat to circumvent Congress on some proposals guarantees her strong opposition from the gun lobby, led by the National Rifle Association.
She will also face criticism from congressional Republicans, who for years have accused president Barack Obama of abusing his executive powers to override congressional opposition on health care, immigration and the environment.

In 2013, just months after a man shot dead 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-12-15/america-mourns-27-dead-in-school-shooting/4430024), the Senate blocked legislation that would have expanded background checks.

No such federal measure has been adopted since, although individual states have acted to strengthen their gun regulations.

My old friend, life long Republican, who is getting increasingly unhappy with his party, called me yesterday. One of his "new" magazines had a test of some sort where he answered a long list of questions on issues. When he got done, it told him which presidential candidate is most in line with his views. Turned out it was Hillary.

Now she'll be pressured by the unions to voice her opinion of the TPP, which is kind of dumb, IMO, as that's been decided. She'll inherit it.

Campaign issues, IMO, ought to be things that are likely to still be issues in Jan. '17.

As to the skit, I found it quite entertaining. I also find it a bit disturbing that, after all these years, so many people really don't know this woman.

The same people who succeeded in making Reagan look like God, in spite of his record, have done a very good job of giving her an image of mistrust in spite of her record.

This brings me back to my friend and his test. He had no idea he and Hillary agreed on so many issues.
