Politicos invade talk shows

It's no secret that most politicians get into their field for the celebrity aspect, so getting their faces out there isn't just part of the job--it's also a perk.

Over the next week, a pair of politically charged ladies will make appearances on television; one to push her current presidential campaign and one for fun before her husband steps out of office in early 2009.

Hillary Clinton will visit Comedy Central's The Colbert Report this Thursday, in preparation for the Pennsylvania Democratic primary on April 22, according to the Associated Press. The news was leaked by MSNBC talking head Chris Matthews and later confirmed by a source close to The Colbert Report.

Colbert allegedly also offered an initiation to Hillary's rival, Barack Obama, who has thus far declined. However, Obama's wife Michelle will appear on the show today.

From people trying to get into the White House to people just about to pack up their things and leave it, first lady Laura Bush is scheduled to serve as guest host on NBC's Today. Bush will host the 9 a.m. ET hour of the daytime talk show on April 22, the same day as the aforementioned primary.

Her appearance will also feature a visit from daughter Jenna, who is peddling her new children's book Read All About It!, as well as a tour of the Bush family ranch in Texas.

Let them go for it! It can only go wrong! These things I doubt will imporve thier image, and of course if one word is said out of line the rest on the Media will be constantly reminding them!

I wonder when someones going to tell these people to get on with thier jobs, and stop selling themselves.

I'd think that Obama would have better success on The Daily Show because it leans more to the left than The Colbert Report.

I'm surprised Obama won't come on The Report. He'd be well-received there, moreso than Clinton IMO.
