(CNN) – Sen. Hillary Clinton is scheduled to appear on Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show’ on Monday, March 3, according to a press release by the cable outlet.

Clinton has previously appeared on the political talk show but her upcoming appearance will be the first since announcing her run for the White House in 2007.

The scheduled appearance comes a day before crucial primaries in Ohio, Texas, Rhode Island, and Vermont where some pundits believe Clinton must do well in order to keep herself in the race for the Democratic nomination.

Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain, the two other leading contenders for the White House, have both appeared on the popular show since the presidential campaign started in early 2007.

    WHat is she going to do : cry?
    what is she going to say: blah blah blah, her old same stuff, attacks on Senator Obama, because she can never focused on what she says she has done in 35 years.
    who cares where she appears, I just h ope that the people of this country sees through her phony crying, her mean personality and ugly words.
    We want change, and we dont want more Clintons or Bush ..........

    It makes me really sad to see that we are again heading in the wrong direction. I had the same feeling 5 years back when we decided to invade Iraq. Most of people were fired up that time and wanted to bomb every camels butt in Iraq. Yes, I remember that! But look what we have bombed? Its our Social Security, our Economy, our freedom, Our Education system, Our Medicare, Our Health Insurances and everything else.

    Our Currency value has lost 25% of the value in the last 5 years. Now those who can still afford a European vacation soon realizes that anyone in Europe has more buying power than well to do families in US. I know, some economists will soon correct me by saying that this is good for our economy and good for our exports. But think who is benefitting from this! We all know that the jobs that are outsourced to other countries are not coming back to US easily until it is no longer profitable for the US companies to operate in other countries.

    I can understand that people are so desperate for change but that does not mean that we should vote for a person without any experience. We have to be very careful what we wish for as democracy is a powerful tool in the hands of people. We know that in certain parts of the world even Hamas and Communist are democratically elected to office! So before voting not just think about what’s good for you, think about what is good for our country. Vote with your Brain and not your Hearts... I know I said too much but you get the idea!

    You know the funniest part? Even if Obama does not deliver the change he promised in Washington and around the world, no can blame him because all he said was "Yes we can", and Obama can rightfully point out that everyone else have to do their part for any meaningful change to happen!

    I honestly don’t think that we have time for trial and error when our economy is heading towards a recession and our foreign polices is already in a great depression. I agree that Obama is a person who knows what is wrong with the world (bullet pointed list of changes) but knowing everything that is wrong with the world enough? We all know what wrong with this world; we need a plan to fix the problems. To the people who are still ignorant about the issues affecting the world, listing the problems itself may be a huge deal but not to sensible people who really cares how to bring real change in everyone’s life.

    And do we elect Obama just because he opposed the Iraq war first (when everyone knew its wrong but still had to agree to invade because the White House presented an excellent case for the Iraq War)? Well we made a big mistake by invading a country without a good plan, but again why are we doing the same mistake again by voting for a person without a plan? Am I just going nuts here or is something really wrong here?

    We all know Obama is a good, honest man and we want him to serve this country for a long time. So what’s wrong if he becomes the VP and getting some real experience before becoming the president? After all it’s all in the interest of this great nation!

    At least logic won't be required. Latest example – HRC campaign says Obama will be in trouble if he doesn't win all of the contests next Tuesday because he spent so much. I guess that's why we had president Perot and why Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee, right...? no...wait

    It is in the interest of this GREAT NATION to elect someone with experience and unquestioned LOYALTY to the United States of America. Someone who has dedicated his life and placed his life on the line for THIS country. That person is JOHN SYDNEY MCCAIN.

    Stop Obama before it is too late.

    Think about this: if Obama doesn't talk...what else make you think he is qualified? None, right?

    He said, "my friend gave me those words, I think it's good, so I used it in my campain."

    Google his fundraiser friend, Tony Rezko, who was arrested last week.

    Wake up folks!! Don't just criticize Hillary on voting for entering Iraq, back then 90% Americans support it. It's Bush who abused the right to let the troops stay until now.

    Hillary 08!!!!

    She is routinely booed by the younger studio audience of the Daily Show. Should be interesting, if nothing else...

    Obama himself is a cheating show! Lots of the political shows will follow him in the future to make people smart.

    When we are obligated to vote for a President we really should look deep into our candidates and do our very best to make the right choice. My son is in Iraq for the 2nd tour. when he comes home for R&R people always ask him how he feels about the invasion of Iraq? He answeres them with this.. " be carefull who we vote for" So please look deep and really think about who we vote for.. It may cause one of your children to end up in War.. Hillary Clinton is my choice, after CAREFULL research and deep insight.. She has always been making CHANGES and I believe she will continue to do so.. Please do your homework Americans!!!

    At last the worm has started to turn. Americans are waking up to the fact that the media has tried to push Obama down our throats, while constantly disparaging Hillary Clinton. It's great that Hillary is going to do this show. Sometimes showing a little humor goes a long way. SNL proved that last week! Rock On Hillary!!!!!
