President Obama to Visit Dave After Spate of Sunday Beltway Interviews
By Lisa DeMoraes
One day after setting a presidential record by appearing on five Sunday Beltway shows in a single day, President Barack Obama will make more history when he becomes the first sitting U.S. President ever to visit David Letterman's "Late Show."
This coming Monday is the first night of the new 2009-10 TV season and Obama will be appearing almost immediately after the season debut of David Caruso's starring vehicle, "CSI: Miami," though he is not expected to weigh in on that and instead focus on lobbing for his health-care reform plan.
Obama last appeared on Letterman's show in September of '08 when he was running for president.
In appearing on Letterman's show, Obama will have just one day to rest up from a planned orgy of blah, blah, blah-ing with the Sunday morning Beltway shows. On Sunday, Obama will appear, not only on ABC's "This Week," but also NBC's "Meet the Press," CBS's "Face the Nation, " on CNN and on Univision. He's giving Fox News Channel a miss, as well as the Fox broadcast network which has in recent weeks steadfastly refused to pre-empt its primetime schedule for Obama news conferences or addresses to the joint session of Congress.
