Hillary Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres play game with 'Scandal' actor Tony Goldwyn

Hillary Clinton is used to battling fellow presidential candidates, but recently on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," she faced off against the clock with the help of a fictional commander in chief.

Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant III on ABC's "Scandal," stopped by the talk-show set to play a round of the game Heads Up. With a minute on the clock, Clinton and DeGeneres teamed up to act out clues, ranging from "dentist" to "slow motion," which Goldwyn tried to guess.

He correctly identified all but one of the clues delivered in 60 seconds, although "photobomb" proved to be too tough in the moment.

Nonetheless, when the buzzer sounded, Clinton hailed Goldwyn's abilities. "You are good!" she proclaimed.

During the same episode that's scheduled to air Monday, the Democratic candidate sat with DeGeneres to offer her takes on pop-culture.

As someone who took a selfie with Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, Clinton was impressed by the reality-TV star's phone case, whose LED lights brighten selfies. "I've never seen this anywhere else," she said, according to the Daily Mail. "It has light all the way around it. Like little tiny, tiny light bulbs. I have been desperately looking for one of those ever since! But no luck."

One thing she probably won't be seeking in the near future is a record deal. According to the Daily Mail, Clinton said "Saturday Night Live" producers asked her to sing the Bill Withers classic "Lean on Me" for her 2015 appearance on the late-night comedy show.

"I said, 'You really don't want to hear me sing,'" Clinton said, the Mail reported. "'Oh, yes, we do,' they said. So we go out to rehearse it. And we get to the point where I sing, and I sing, and the producers look at me, and they say, 'No, we don't want you to sing.'"

They might, however, want to play Heads Up with her.
