Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton performed Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” in the cold open of Saturday Night Live on November 12.

This was the most beautiful moment on SNL in a long time, possibly since Steve Martin’s tribute to Gilda Radner after her death. It was followed by Dave Chappelle as guest host with a sharp monologue whose closing line made me proud to be from the same town. Our national challenge will summon everything we’ve got, but we will get through this together.
