    Default Obama on Letterman next Monday <ROLLING EYES>

    Apparently, President Obama will appear on Letterman next Monday....
    Who the F is his advisor? What the F do they think they will achieve
    with this appearance? Do they really think the timing is right?
    Is it ever right for a president to appear on these types of shows
    while in office (he already did it on the Tonight Show, which I
    thought was unneccessary, too). Was that crazy old POW right
    when he said Obama was more a celeb than a politician? Sigh.

    Letterman to Interview Obama on Monday

    By Brian Stelter

    President Obama - coming off a full day of interviews on five Sunday political shows - will be David Letterman’s guest on Monday night.

    Mr. Obama will be the sole guest on “The Late Show” on Monday, Sept. 21, CBS said in a press release. “President Obama’s appearance will mark the first by a sitting U.S. President on the ‘Late Show’ and his first visit back to the show since his election,” CBS said.

    Mr. Obama made an appearance on Mr. Letterman’s chief competition, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” last March. Back then, it was called “a rare personal visit by a commander in chief to late night television.”

    Mr. Letterman’s show is the latest stop in what Josef Adalian of The Wrap calls “President Obama’s health care world tour,” including his appearances on five Sunday morning talk shows this weekend.

    I think he's an approachable president, with nothing to hide, he has all his own answers--I'm anxious to watch it!!

    They must have called Letterman themselves, because next week's schedule was already published.

    I think he has had as many speeches and media events as he has had days in office, if not more.

    Letterman?

    C'mon, I can see the going on TV thing, but how about a real interview show, like Bill Moyers Journal.

    Was that crazy old POW right
    when he said Obama was more a celeb than a politician?
    In this case, it seems he was.

    I could care less if he does Letterman, as long as he's doing it for a reason. Like trying to sale his healthcare reform. If it's just some fluff thing, then it's pointless.

    But I'll get excited when Palin goes on Letterman, which will never happen.

    If he's going to be on Meet the Press, can Rachel Maddow substitute for David Gregory?

    Has a sitting president ever gone on late night TV before? I can't recall one.

    Didn't Clinton play the sax on Letterman?

    ^^ I didn't think he was in office then though .. I could be wrong. I'm just unsure if I think it's being savvy trying to be the hip president and try to go for a younger crowd or it's just really inappropriate. I'm on the fence.

    ETA: That wasn't Letterman either, I believe. It was that guy ... name escapes me ... WTF was his name ... Eddie Murphy's friend ...

    ETAA: ARSENIO HALL! That was his name.

    From wiki:

    Then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton was a guest on the show in June 1992, playing "Heartbreak Hotel" on the saxophone (causing Arsenio to quip, "It's nice to see a Democrat blow something besides the election"). The appearance is often considered[by whom?] an important moment in Clinton's political career, helping build his popularity among minority and young voters; Clinton went on to win the election in November 1992.
