(Newser) – On the eve of primary contests that could sink or save her campaign, Hillary Clinton turned up on The Daily Show for some good-natured ribbing from host Jon Stewart. "Tomorrow is perhaps one of the most important days of your life, and you've chosen to spend the night before talking to me," observed the pseudo-newscaster, to which Clinton could only respond: "It is pretty pathetic."

Stewart countered last weekend's sketch on Saturday Night Live that portrayed the media as "a little soft on Barack Obama" and asked the New York senator how she would behave if she had won the last 11 primaries. "Well, those are a lot of questions Jon," answered Clinton, drawing laughs. After Clinton's appearance—via satellite hookup
from Austin—the candidate jokingly told onlookers: "It was horrible."
