Clinton to appear on 'The Daily Show'

 Clinton last appeared on Stewart's show in 2003.

(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.

    The headline of this article is yet another example of the endless parade of defamatory portrayals of Senator Clinton by the press. The article is positive, but the headline 'Clinton to take on John Stewart' implies that they are in some sort of fight. Just reading the headline might make one think that Clinton is embroiled in a back-and-forth conflict with the comedian, when in fact the exact opposite is true! So good job CNN, keep pushing for Obama, no matter how obvious your bias has become! Thanks for betraying the nation by painting Clinton, who is by far the most qualified and competent candidate on EITHER side, as a vindictive back-stabber. I'm just glad she's been strong enough to stand up to you and your defamation and favoritism for 20 years even as she keeps fighting to improve the lives of Americans.

    On is she going to tell us all how experienced she is and how Obama isn't experienced enough and how is was absent. Perhaps she should have been asent instead of voting for the war. She didn;t do her homework before making that vote or she wouldn't have voted as she did. Obama did his homework.

    I worked on several staffing panels and because of union agreements we sometimes had to hire/promote the person with the most seniority and experience or because they were members of a targeted equity group and who met the minimum qualifications over another with less seniority and experience and who was actually better qualified, the better candidate for the job. Not to put Unions or Union agreements or employment equity down. They are needed but sometimes we got a so so person instead of an exceptional person in the position. Sometimes we got mediocracy. Experience and seniority alone are no guarantee that the person is the best one for the job.

    @ Theresa,
    I did research and I support Barack Obama.
    And my research was careful.
    And I can spell.

    Hillary supporters – even if your candidate wins by 20% in all four states on Tuesday, which I don't think you expect even in your dreams, you still have a long and difficult road to the nomination. (I've done research here, too, and my math is even better than my spelling.)

    I do like Jon Stewart though...

    OBAMA 08!!

    Mary,
    You hit the nail on the head. Also the reason Obama is getting the good treatment by the media is for one reason and that is so the republicans can win by a landslide in the general election. The rich / republicans own the media and can't afford Hillary as president so they are taking her out early. After Hillary is gone they will start bashing Obama, so he will fall from grace and McCain will became America's little darling, the Obama fans want know what hit them. Currently the Military Industrial Complex is running our country with our V.P. pulling the strings. Bush is just set out front playing president while the rich make a killing off the war. When people tell you the war is not going as planned by the Bush gang you should realize it is really going just as planned. They are making billions every day and they will do just about anything to keep this money coming in. I would love to see Hillary get the nod but it looks like the republicans have duped us again. Obama will be staked out for the kill in the general election and we will have 4 more years of republican rule and blood sucking. I had HOPE this Obama spin would ware off our young people and our Black community but it only gets worse. Obama is White when he needs to be and then Black at the tlip of a hat. He is not the second coming of nobody but how do mature Democrats get this across to these Obama fans? It's like a game to them and they don't seem to know this is real life and we as a nation are interviewing candidates for the hardest job in the world and we must look at things like experience, not how cool a guy is. We can only pray they come to their senses in Texas, Ohio, Penn and the remaining states so we can put Hillary in the office she has worked so hard for. This women is the real deal and it's shame on us if she is not our next president. Obama will be around for the next 8 years and if he proves himself he could take the next 8 years. Just think, no republican rule for 16 years!!!

    Jon, ask Hillary is she has to return the $30 Million of money in
    donations she has received or will she get to pocket the money

    When I see Hillary only one word comes to mind, desperation. I hope and pray that Obama wins all of the primaries on March 4th or at least 3 of them. And to that person who said if you took away Obama's speeches what has he got?? Well, obviously you haven't checked on him so you don't know anything about him except what Hillary has been feeding you all which mostly were lies! Now If you'll actually bothered to look at his site you'll know he has done more for America than simply give inspiring speeches!

    In any case, go Obama! Keep the faith people! Nobody said change is going to be easy so we should never give up. Keep calling!

    Obama made many mistakes, and still does, but it seems that it does not matter. Hillary made mistakes, but she is being hit hard for them. We are only human beings, all of us. NO one is perfect. Hillary is just more stable, i feel secure with her, not with Obama -he is constantly changing his stories, opinions. The one which really did it : he denounced Hillary video ( the 3 am one, but immediately he made a copy of it with his ending versiong. How smart – and original was this? Well, i do understand then that he denounced himself.
    And it is good Hillary talks to people. Why not? Each of candidates does.

    I think Obama should cry to make fun of Hillary. "Please vote for me, cuz I'm such a sensitive guy, and my feelings would be so hurt if I lost....waaah waaah waaah".

    If Texas goes to Obama, I think the McCain camp stands a very good chance of getting in. Say hello to your new President Mr McCain who got a zero rating from Sierra Club on his environmental record..........

    Hillary supporters, Im all for an Independent ticket with HRC. I wont readjust my vote to Obama.

    Beyond the shameless pandering of Hilary's past, (making a flag burning a federal crime, promotion of the patriot act, etc,) her acrimonious nature makes here unfit to be in any managerial position, certainly president. That her campaign has been so utterly outflanked and outwitted by Obama's serves testimony to her abysmal ability to lead. Following the faux patriotism predominant at the time of the Iraq vote not only demonstrated her lack of judgment, but reinforces her lake of managerial skill. Finally, Hillary as a democratic nominee will make McCain president.

    Stewart is gonna grill her on her supposed 35 years of experience... He's asked several guests before whether or not her time in the whitehouse should be considered part of that; he's obviously skeptical.

    I'm sure we'll hear plenty of her insincere cackling laughs during the segment though.

    jON, YOU COULD HAVE ANYONE YOU WANT ON YOUR SHOW.
    Why a liar.????? This guest will make you very unpopular. Can
    you cancel or stay home sick in bed.

    I have never donated to a political campaign before this year. However, I have donated to Hillary Clinton, the last time just last night, primarily in response to the overwhelming television/media pundits calling the election ahead of time in favor of Obama. The continual bashing of Clinton and the nature of the remarks is plain sexism. What I would like to say to the men out there who still fear a woman as the president of the United States is: "It will be okay. You will be okay. Change IS hard. "

    Shrillery and McBush are not the future of this country. It will be business as usual. More lives lost in Iraq, continued high prices at the pump, and useless leadership.

    Not to mention slick Willy roaming the WH, if Shrillary wins. Yes, Shrillery will be able to complete her stolen Wh china collection, but what will the people get.

    I would vote for Shrillery in a minute if she were honest, but she's not, so she will NEVER get my vote. Vote for a selfish, self-centered liar if you want. I won't sell my soul so that Shrillery can be the first female president.

    America deserves a leader who cares about them, not self-centered ambitions.

    Obama is a cheerleader, we need a LEADER.

    Obama stop copying Hillary's programs, stop copying speeches, stop copying slogans.

    I believe that most of the people that want Hillary to win
    were stupid enough to vote for Bush TWICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As a onetime Hillary supporter, I have found that Senator Obama is the better choice (as apparently, a majority of Democratic voters have all over the country). The more I learned about Hillary, the more uneasy I became. It is not just her traditionally old "machine politics" of slash, burn, and blame, but frankly, she is too difficult to admire or even like (reminds me of Richard Nixon).

    Obama may not be perfect, and he is not the messiah the media likes to make him out to be, but he is a leader people will follow. He is a uniter (and I am sick of the Clinton "blame game"), he is certainly likable, and finally, he is NOT named Bush or Clinton!
