President Obama to Visit 'Tonight Show with Jay Leno'


Barack Obama


'Tonight Show with Jay Leno' has scored a future visit from Barack Obama that makes it the first sitting by a U.S. President who is serving in the office.

"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" will welcome a very special guest on Thursday, March 19. The 44th U.S. President Barack Obama has agreed to a sit-in at the talk show to discuss the country's affairs including his economic plan and "other topics", NBC confirmed.

The sit-down is part of Obama's visit to Southern California on that day. He will stop by the NBC Burbank studio in Los Angeles and talk in front of live audience in the afternoon before heading back to Washington. This consequently will be the first in American history for an on-duty U.S. president to come by a late-night chat show, and the first for Obama to make such appearance since his election last year.

Even while campaigning, Obama has gained popularity as a celebrity as much as a politician. Thus, the appearance on the show will bridge the ends between news and entertainment where audience is not limited to political-oriented people. On being placed between the two, Brookings Institution expert Darrell M.West commented, "That's the group he needs to convince that he's doing a good job and his budget makes sense."

Country crooner Garth Brooks will be the musical guest that night.
