Being on The Tonight Show

President Obama will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday. He will be the first sitting president to appear on a late night talk show. I can just hear the serious media talking heads now. Why would he do such a thing? He's the President of the United States!

While many presidential candidates appear on late night talk shows during campaigns, perhaps the forum once elected as president is beneath them. The meeting places would now only include gilded offices with swivel leather chairs.

But President Obama's style is a bit more relaxed and he seems to desire to be with the people where they are. He is the president of all the people and wherever the people orderly congregate he seems to want to be. I like his style.
