Obama to Appear on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Thursday

President Obama will appear on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Thursday, taping the Comedy Central latenight talk show on the same night as the Al Smith dinner.

This will be Obama’s second appearance on “The Daily Show” since taking office, having also guested on Oct. 27, 2010, when Stewart was in Washington to tape a week of shows in advance of the Rally to Restore Sanity.

Obama has appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and guested last month on “Late Show with David Letterman.” Given the presumed partisan makeup of “The Daily Show,” he selection to go on Stewart probably has less to do with swaying voters who aren’t paying much attention to the race than in motivating Democrats to turn out. Stewart was critical of Obama’s performance at last week’s debate, and was biting of the administration’s response to the attacks in Libya.
