Hillary Clinton is scheduled to make what the New York Times is calling a critical campaign stop tonight: Saturday Night Live. She'll supposedly be appearing in the cold open of the 41st season premiere, and the paper says it's a critical moment for her to show voters she has a "funny, personable" side before the first Democratic primaries. Clinton tells Entertainment Tonight she's learned a thing or two about herself watching the various SNL cast members pretending to be her. "I love the impersonations of me, first by Amy [Poehler], who's a great friend, now by Kate [McKinnon]," she says. "I'm just thrilled that [Lorne Michaels has] got these amazing women doing these impersonations, and I want to see how it goes." (Read more Hillary Clinton stories.)
