LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: The first lady paid a visit last night to everybody's late-night pal, David Letterman.
NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: And she said she was nervous. And what would an appearance on the Letterman show be without a Top Ten List? Mrs. Clinton brought her own.
HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON: From the home office in Chappaqua, New York, the top ten reasons that I, Hillary Clinton, finally decided to appear on the "Late Show"
DAVID LETTERMAN, "LATE SHOW" HOST: Here we go. All right.
CLINTON: Number 10: I lost a bet with Tipper.
Number 9: I did think this was a show where you answer a couple of easy questions and you win $1 million.
LETTERMAN: Yes. Guess again.
CLINTON: Number 8: If Dan Quayle did it, how hard could it be?
CLINTON: Number 7: I was already in town to interview for the Jets' head coach position.
LETTERMAN: Everybody else is.
CLINTON: Number 6: Four words: severe lapse of judgment.
Number 5: I needed an excuse to get out of dinner with Donald Trump.
LETTERMAN: Oh, how about that guy?
CLINTON: Number 4: When they threw in a "Late Show" tote bag, I said, "Gas up the Taurus, Bill, we're going to Dave's."
LETTERMAN: That tote bag does it every time.
CLINTON: And number 3: I have not been in the Ed Sullivan Theater since I was dating Ringo.
CLINTON: Now, number 2: To tell you the truth, Dave, I thought Johnny hosted this show.
LETTERMAN: I wish he did. That's not a bad idea -- Johnny in here.
CLINTON: And number 1: If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere.
LETTERMAN: There you go.
ALLEN: Pretty good.
President Clinton planned to watch his wife on the "Late Show" at their new home in Chappaqua. That's about an hour north of Manhattan. He's a notorious night owl.
WATERS: But get this: The last we heard, the chief executive was trying to find a TV set. Apparently the Clintons don't own one.
It's not that easy out here in the private sector.
ALLEN: Welcome to our world.
