"You want to clarify what kind of monster?" the brilliant Stephen Colbert asked former Obama aide Samantha Power on the Colbert Report in a reference to Power’s remark to a Scottish newspaper that Sen. Hillary Clinton is a "monster."

"There’s a way to make this positive," Colbert says. "Why not embrace it? What about a good monster like Cookie Monster? …The campaign slogan could be ‘C is for Clinton, that’s good enough for me.’"

(The question — are cookies good enough for Clinton?)

"I’m willing to say that John McCain is a minotaur," Colbert added.
