WASHINGTON — Set ’em up, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and lend an ear to the troubles of a presidential candidate.

The front-runner for the Democratic nomination appeared on the season opener of “Saturday Night Live” as a wise bartender named Val who pours a drink or two for — ahem — Hillary Clinton, as played by “SNL” regular Kate McKinnon.

Most political candidates play themselves on “SNL,” often for just a cameo in a sketch or to declare the show’s famous tag line, “Live from New York — it’s Saturday night!” Seldom do they go all-out thespian and play a character in a sketch.

The skit poked gentle fun at Clinton’s slow opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline, her late-arriving support of gay marriage, and her inability to take a vacation.
