5 things Hillary Clinton has to celebrate on her birthday.

Hillary Clinton made her first visit to “the cathedral of Colbert,” as she called it, appearing on “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday and quipping with the host about potential GOP challengers Donald Trump and Ben Carson.After weeks of testing out her positions on income inequality and Wall Street regulation in the financial press, Hillary Clinton brought her message to an unlikely venue: the late night comedy circuit.

NEW YORK (AP) — It should come as no surprise, but when Hillary Rodham Clinton kicks back for a little pleasure viewing, she gravitates to TV dramas about government and law.Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC’s “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert Tuesday night and joked about her time before the Benghazi Select Committee, as well as the HBO TV series “House of Cards.” Clinton laughed and told Colbert she had slept late and had “tried to get away with as little as I could get away with.” The audience, however, did not pick up on the humor, that she had re-watched all 11 hours of the Benghazi hearing. The group launched “Let’s Talk Hillary” on Monday, highlighting the Democratic frontrunner’s personal and professional accomplishments as told by the people who know and love her and by those who have been helped by her over the years. “There are so many families and individuals in this country with stories about how Hillary Clinton’s kind words, friendship or record of service have changed their lives for the better, and they are sick and tired of all the lies that are told about her by the far right and the media,” said David Brock, founder of Correct The Record.

The former secretary of state’s 2016 campaign was walking into a minefield of events that could have posed significant damage to her presidential candidacy. I don’t know, read her emails or something,” Colbert joked in the segment, which aired on Sept. 11. (TM and © Copyright 2015 CBS Radio Inc. and its relevant subsidiaries.

If Clinton were president, Colbert asked, “and the banks are failing, do we let the banks fail this time?” “Look at what happened in ’08, we had a big insurance company that had to be bailed out, we had an investment bank, Lehman Brothers, that failed. ” Three weeks ago, Clinton published an op-ed on Bloomberg View outlining her plan to “Prevent the Next Crash.” On Tuesday, she returned to financial matters, focusing on the need to bolster the middle class. “We have to raise the minimum wage,” Clinton continued. “It’s a poverty wage now. She admitted to being “a little” jealous that Madeleine Albright, the first female secretary of state, appeared in a recent cameo on the show, according to the AP. A website with the first two videos launched Monday on Clinton’s 68th birthday, featuring Arkansans talking about Clinton’s advocacy for children and families as the state’s first lady and friends wishing her a happy birthday. We have to look at the whole financial system and my plan does that.” Her stated refusal to bail out the big banks—to let them fail, if a 2008 scenario were to repeat itself—was a crystallization, a hardening, of her economic position. “First of all, under Dodd-Frank, that is what will happen because we now have stress-tests and I’m going to impose a risk fee on the big bank if they engage in risky investor,” she said. “And they have to know, what their shareholders have to know is, yes, they will fail.

And if they’re too big to fail, then, under my plan and others that have been proposed, they may have to be broken up.” Sitting in matching orange-red and black, perhaps a nod to Halloween, Clinton laughed as Colbert displayed pictures of Clinton in various earlier stages of life: Halloween costume ideas, he said. He acknowledged that, in his past alter ego as a conservative blowhard hosting Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report,” he had played a character “who didn’t care for you.” Clinton answered that she wants to make it possible for more people, particularly young people, “to live up to their God-given potential,” while she helps defend women’s rights, gay rights and voting rights.

Colbert suggested that, with another Clinton in the White House, Americans were being promised an encore of the 1990s, and asked plaintively, “Do I have to wear parachute pants?” “I’m not running for my husband’s third term,” Clinton declared. “I’m not running for President Obama’s third term. The campaign picked up 100,000 donors in October alone – marking one-fifth of all individual donors who have backed Clinton since she formally entered the race. It also made clear that differences in the past were now water under the bridge. “Now, to be honest, during the most intense days of the 2008 primary, I would never have imagined writing this piece.

After months of hand-wringing and overwrought speculation over Joe Biden’s presidential ambitions, the answer finally came – the veep would not be running. While Clinton has remained effusive in singing Biden’s praises, it’s likely that she met the former Delaware senator’s announcement last week with a sigh of relief. His potential candidacy posed as an existential threat to the Clinton’s 2016 ambitions by splitting up mainstream Democrats and top donors who remain loyal to Biden.
