Amy Poehler in Men's Vogue

Short piece on Amy Poehler here in Men's Vogue.
And may I say she looks absolutely stunning in the shot they took of here.

From Men's Vogue:

No matter what happens in November, Amy Poehler's impersonation of Hillary Clinton on Saturday Night Live will be remembered as one of the high points of the 2008 election. Bossy, bouffanted, totally absurd, Poehler's send-up helped earn her an Emmy nomination, the show's first supporting actress nod in 30 years. It also managed to steer the political debate, lure Clinton onto SNL — excavating her sense of humor in the process — and give her campaign some much-needed oxygen. McCain and Obama may be safe from an Amytation, but their Secret Service details are feeling the heat: The Massachusetts-born Poehler delights in tormenting the grim-faced agents whenever the candidates make cameos. "They're pretty badass and super secret, and they just love it if you give them a nickname," she says. "Like, just call 'em Foxtrot, or like, Hey, Fireball. What's up, Danger Mouse?"
But after seven seasons on Saturday Night Live, she'll anchor her final Weekend Update later this fall and start filming a new mockumentary series for NBC from the producers of The Office. "It's gonna be really hard — Boyz II Men hard — to say goodbye to yesterday," Poehler says. "SNL was dangerous, late-night, last-minute, and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down." With luck, the new series could do for Poehler what 30 Rock did for her pal Tina Fey: crown her as primetime royalty. Before that happens, though, the 37-year-old is somehow going to find the downtime to give birth to her first child with her husband and occasional costar, Will Arnett. She insists their off-camera routines are more sit-down than stand-up (TV marathons of Locked Up Abroad, Intervention, and "really sad hour-long dramas") and that recently she's even been using what she calls the P.E. — Pregnancy Excuse — to duck out of parties early. Of course, the Baby Mama star knows that fertility can be fertile material. "My baby drops in October," she says, "and everybody's got to go out and get it."
