Obama Booked for Letterman

Jay Leno may have a shiny new show, but his old rival, David Letterman, has the president: Barack Obama will be Letterman’s sole guest on the Late Show on Monday, September 21. “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. Obama appeared on Leno’s old program, the Tonight Show, in March, where he made his “Special Olympics” gaffe. Obama will also appear on all five Sunday-morning talk shows this weekend.
