Hillary Clinton talked about the 2016 election on 'The Daily Show" Tuesday night, and even took host Jon Stewart's career aptitude test.

When asked if she enjoys "constant, non-stop criticism," Clinton said she has at least come to "expect, survive, live through" it.

"It sounds like to me you've declared for the presidency," Stewart concluded to loud audience cheers.

Later addressing the backlash to her previous claim that she and former President Bill Clinton were once "dead broke," Clinton acknowledged, "That was an inartful use of words, obviously."

Clinton added that she's worried young people today won't have the same opportunities that her generation did.

"We believed that we could pretty much make our way up the ladder and now I think a lot of particularly young people don't believe that anymore. And that bothers me a lot," Clinton said.

Clinton has made numerous television appearances to promote her latest book, "Hard Choices," sitting for interviews with Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS and NPR. According to The Associated Press, the memoir is No. 2 on The New York Times' nonfiction best-seller list.

The former first lady also faced a lot of scrutiny throughout her publicity tour as sales have dropped sharply since the book's release. Clinton's publisher, Simon & Schuster, gave her an almost $14 million advance and shipped out 1 million copies of the book to stores. At the current rate of sales, it will take months for those copies to be sold.
