Sex and the presidency

Samantha Bee of "The Daily Show" morphs into Bradshaw to find out about Hillary.

Thanks to Jezebel for linking to Tuesday night's excellent "Daily Show" segment by Samantha Bee. In it, Bee morphs into a very believable Carrie Bradshaw as she wonders, in Sarah Jessica Parker-perfect tones, now that women can be "doctresses, body-buildtrixes and firemenwomen," "Is America ready for a woman president?"

The whole clip is hilarious, but the best part is probably when Bee goes "cruising the sample sales with [her] feminist friend Kim Gandy, the lady president of some lady thing." That would be the National Organization for Women.
