Colbert playfully mocked her autobiography Hard Choices as 656 pages of "shameless name dropping," so she came on to take him to task for his own name dropping. Turns out they both have met President Bill Clinton ... and Stephen Colbert isn't mentioned in the book. That's gotta sting.

Colbert's five-minute bit with Clinton wasn't nearly as tough on the rumored presidential hopeful as he's been in the past. For example, back in February he pointed out she would be 69 years old by the time she's elected president -- which he felt was "too old."

Still, Clinton could use the "Colbert Bump" as her book sales haven't lived up to initial expectations.

In fact, it's been outsold for weeks by Edward Klein's "Blood Feud: The Clintons v. The Obamas," which delves into the rocky relationship between the two families.

"Blood Feud" currently sits at the number three spot on the New York Times bestseller list while Clinton's "Hard Choices" is at number five.
