Obama On The Daily Show

By Amy Hart in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 7, 2005 9:27PM


Set your TiVo or tune into The Daily Show with Jon Stewart tonight at 10 PM on Comedy Central to catch Stewart interview Senator Barack Obama.

The Daily Show first asked the busy Obama to be on the show over a year ago, but this will be his first appearance. This morning it looked like Obama would miss the appearance in New York, as he wanted to stay in Washington to take part in some Senate votes, however the interview will now take place via satellite.

Chicagoist wonders what Stewart and Obama will talk about... Alito? Bird flu? Katrina? The Environmental Protection Agency? Foreign policy? Obama's new podcasts? His political action committee, Hopefund?

Or maybe the men will discuss their inclusion on the list of the top ten ubersexuals in the world.

If you miss the Daily Show tonight at 10 PM, you can catch the repeat Tuesday at midnight, 9 AM, 1 PM, and 7 PM. All times Central Time Zone.
