The Democratic presidential candidate is said to appear on a sketch in the 'SNL' November 1 edition.
Sarah Palin has got her share of spotlight on "Saturday Night Live" and probably accumulates some potential voters for herself and it's time for opponent Barack Obama to raise his ballot. Rumors are circulating that the Democratic candidate will appear on the sketch show on November 1, three days before the election day.
This speculation erupts since "SNL" executive producer Lorne Michaels said that he expected all four presidential candidates to appear on the show in a bid to win the favor from people of America. Furthermore, regular actor Seth Meyers who appeared in a skit with Palin earlier this month, mentioned "...yeah, but just wait til you see what we have cooked up for Obama's appearance right before the election."
If indeed he will appear on the show, he will star in a sketch with repertory player Darrell Hammond. The November 1 episode will be hosted by Ben Affleck and present David Cook in the musical guest slot.
'SNL' camp has issued a statement ruling the rumor as "untrue", but they also released the same statement when the question of Palin appearing on the show was proposed last month.
Running fast on his campaign, Obama made a surprise appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" this week via satellite. Ellen DeGeneres made him dance to a groovy song and asked his plan on the upcoming Halloween.
