Earlier this week CBS announced that President Barack Obama will be on The Late Show With David Letterman on Monday. In fact, the entire broadcast will be devoted to Obama's visit, which is a huge milestone. Obama was a guest several times on the program during his campaign for office, but this is the first time a current president has appeared on the show.
I get why Obama is sitting in Dave's chair, but isn't The Late Show better suited to guests like, oh, Drew Barrymore and George Clooney? Not to mention, President Bill Clinton is set to be Letterman's guest on Tuesday, so we'll have back-to-back policy talk.
Maybe it's just me, but I've always tuned into late night shows for the lighter celebrity stuff. If I want to hear about health care reform, I'll flip to MSNBC. But what's your take on this — do you like watching politicians on late night TV?
