Given that Hillary Clinton formally announced this past weekend that she is running for president in the 2016 race, Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon can look forward to quite an exciting election season.

The comedian, who has delighted viewers with her hilarious impression of the politician, opened up to E! News at the Tribeca Film Festival about what she's planning in the months ahead.

"Who knows what'll happen. I mean, anything can happen and certainly there'll be a lot of fun roles for the men as well, depending on who that Republican guy is…I'm assuming it'll be a guy," McKinnon, who was promoting a documentary about the late-night show dubbed Live From New York!, explained alongside her co-stars Bobby Moynihan and Beck Bennett.

"It's going to be fun for everyone," McKinnon added before Bennett joked that he's going to be stealing the Clinton role from her.

"I love you, but it's friendly competition," he playfully quipped.

On a serious note, the 67-year-old former New York senator made headlines Sunday after releasing a video announcing her candidacy.

"I'm getting ready to do something too—I'm running for president," she told the camera. "Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Everyday Americans need a champion and I want to be that champion…I'm hitting the road to earn your vote because it's your time. And I hope you'll join me on this journey."
