Daily Show Primary
The candidates on both sides are already going through a bunch of mini-primaries, particularly the Democrats, who wooed bloggers on Saturday and will meet with labor leaders in Chicago on Tuesday. But what about the Jon Stewart primary? As the AP reports today, over the next three weeks, four candidates will appear this month on "The Daily Show" :Republicans Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson, and Democrats Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) McCain is of course a regular, it will be his tenth appearance on the show when he shows up on August 16.
The host is unlikely to endorse a candidate, but his youthful audience is the kind the candidates would all like to woo. Of course, they shouldn't expect a easy go of it. When McCain came for what he told Stewart then was his last appearance on the show, the two had a spirited debate on Iraq. Here's Obama's first appearance, where poked fun at his Senate colleagues.
