Hillary will visit David Letterman on Monday. The former First Lady will promote her memoir on a show that's been having fun at her expense

To New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, David Letterman is not just a talk show host, he's also a voter. She'll be appearing on the ''Late Show'' on Monday for the latest promotional stop for her best-selling memoir, ''Living History.'' The visit will mark her sixth time as Dave's guest, including one appearance she made with nine of her colleagues to read items from a Top Ten list of ''things never before said by a United States senator.''

Apparently, the former First Lady doesn't mind chatting with a host who's been having a lot of fun recently at her expense. He's made the book the subject of a number of jokes this week. For example: ''The crime rate in New York City is so low... seriously, the only people getting ripped off now are the folks buying Hillary's book.'' And, ''Have you folks read the new Hillary Clinton book? It's unbelievably successful. They have sold 200,000 copies of this book. That's amazing, isn't it? You know what they're going to do now, they're adding a sex scandal to the new Harry Potter book.''
