(Newser) – Hillary Clinton showed off her lighter side in a Super Tuesday eve appearance on David Letterman, joking to the talk-show host that in her White House, "we'll know who wears the pantsuits." Clinton said she was hoarse from rooting for the Giants in a Minneapolis sports bar, and that she took heart from their last-minute victory.

A more serious Clinton talked about issues like home foreclosure and health care ahead of today's crucial vote. Clinton said her campaigning had been "exhausting and invigorating," and dodged a question about whether she'd consider Dem rival Barack Obama as a running mate. "It's really down to you and Regis," she quipped to Letterman.
