"That's what I love about America, it's the only place where a secretary of state, senator and lifelong public servant can be put on equal footing with a screaming cantaloupe," said Cartoon Hillary Clinton.

After her historic nomination and moving speeches from Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton at the Democratic National Convention, Stephen Colbert decided he should try to get to know the "real" Hillary during Tuesday's Late Show

Bill Clinton celebrated her achievement on Tuesday, after she became the first woman to become a presidential nominee for a major party going into a general election. During his speech, he compared the event this week in Philadelphia to last week's Republican Convention, saying the GOP's version of Hillary Clinton isn't real. "Your only option is to create a cartoon," he said. 

"Well, let's try it," said Colbert, welcoming Cartoon Hillary Clinton.

Cartoon Hillary appeared with a strained smile, thanking Colbert for his congratulations and expressing how happy she was to be there. "That's what I love about America, it's the only place where a secretary of state, senator and lifelong public servant can be put on equal footing with a screaming cantaloupe." 

How did she think her husband did in his speech? "Wonderful, he was healthy, he stood there. Wonderful." 

After telling Colbert how "beautiful" and "powerful" each one of his questions were, Cartoon Hillary explained how important it was that the Democrats come together "in unity, or harmony, or solidarity or whatever synonym resonates more strongly with you." 

She also spoke about her new "great friend" of several days now, Bernie Sanders, her emails and the economy.
