No word yet on whether the two women discussed Poehler's impression, although the Secretary of State, 64, recently showed off her killer sense of humor when she submitted her own "Text From Hillary" to the hit Tumblr.

Poehler, who left SNL in 2008, is now starring as civil servant Leslie Knope on NBC's Parks and Recreation--and has said she likes to think the eternally optimistic Knope takes inspiration from the former Senator's career.

"I think that [Leslie] is well aware of Hillary and the way that she, along with many other female politicians, have paved the way and opened many doors," Poehler told the New York Daily News in 2009. "She . . . looks at her as a role model."
