The President on “The View”

Abc_obama_view2_080327_ms President Obama will guest on “The View” on Thursday — marking the first time a commander-in-chief has stopped by the daytime program. After his appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Late Show with David Letterman,” it’s just the latest media “first” for Obama, but also shows the power of the ABC show as a political platform. Next question: Can an a full-hour sitdown on Oprah Winfrey’s  show be far behind?

Update: Obama will tape his appearance on Wednesday and it will be show on Thursday.
