    Thoughts on this?

    I wonder what the security costs are for this optional forum. Does it bother anyone that the POTUS is going on a late night comedy-variety show? Will they have the regular audience, or will they be hand-picked, or will they be canned, their applause added later in post-production?

    Obama's taking us where we've never been with this.

    What say you?

    Why would the security costs be any higher for him to be on Leno then to be in any other building or any other forum?

    I don't really care if he appears on any TV show. I won't be watching the show.

    The President of the United States is appearing on a comedy show during his first 100 days in office. Clearly, his credibility is now officially in the toilet.

    That would be a question needed asking. The White House is secure anyway. No flight to New York or Hollywood or wherever Leno tapes his show needed, etc. It's not like the President cannot get airtime from all the networks any time he chooses.

    It just seems odd to me. No one's ever done this.

    The audience will be hand-picked to some degree, in that people carrying automatic firearms and homemade bombs will likely be excluded.

    That's likely for every Leno taping. The DO have metal detectors.

    That's because Leno is important.

    If he is incapacitated, the next in succession is Kevin Eubanks.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Entire Secret Service entourage, Air Force One, Presidential staffers and the Limo, all paid for by us so we can see Obama on Leno. Of course, most all of that happened when he was on Leno as a candidate, save AF1.

    I wonder if he'll be going on Oprah's show next?
