(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.

    Good move for Hillary ! New poll today shows 81% of people asked said Obama is getting a free ride from the media and is going easy on him. Only 19% said Hillary was getting the free ride. Appearantly this is overwhelmingly obvious in the media on the coddling of Obama. Hillary also gets endorsement today from 5 star General .

    HERE COMES HILLARY !!

    Interesting poll on CNN today. Have you ever embellished your resume? 77% say No. Maybe that is why Hillary is losing. People do not like the fact that Hillary is staking claim to her husband's resume.

    Was I the only one that read the artitcle on Senator Clinton taking $170,000 for her campaign from a disbarred attorney from a troubled firm? She pretends to fight for women and yet as I read the article, I was confused whether she is actually standing up for women or the money meant more to her than the women she says she cares about.

    You can read the article on MSNBC/

    Shame on you Hillary!!!!

    wow, the comments were interesting; must admit, this primary is way to long in duration; on with the show; hillary has 2 votes in this household; i don't see obama as a worker; needs more time as a senator or governor; not mature enough to run this nation; i feel he is getting his ideas from advisors; then makes pretty speeches; "were almost there" or does that mean "i have a dream" someone elses dream; if its not hillary, then it must be mc cain.

    OH QUIT WITH THE OBAMA OPPOSED THE WAR!! HE GAVE A SPEECH. WHICH PROBABLY WASN'T EVEN HIS WORDS!! THAT'S IT! HE DIDN'T HAVE TO VOTE ON IT. HE WASN'T EVEN IN THE SENATE THEN. THEN HE SAYS 2 YEARS LATER, WELL, I AM NOT SURE WHICH WAY I WOULD HAVE VOTED. FLIP FLOP, FLIP FLOP. OBAMA SAYS ANYTHING TO WIN. HE HAS ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE IN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO SPEAK OF. EXPERIENCE DOES COUNT!! IT COUNTS IN EVERY PHASE OF LIFE SO WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU GIVE THE JOB OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO A ROOKIE?? OUR ECONOMY IS CIRCLING THE DRAIN!!! OUR DOLLAR IS WAY DOWN AGAINST FOREIGN CURRENCY. WE ARE STRUGGLING TO STAY AFLOAT AND WAGING A WAR ON TWO FRONTS. OUR INFRASTRUCTURES ARE COLLASPING. BEEN TO THE GROCERY STORE LATELY?? WE NEED SOMEONE WITH EXPERIENCE IN THE WHITE HOUSE ON DAY 1. IT MUST BE HILLARY CLINTON IF WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT THROUGH THIS RECESSION. VOTE HILLARY CLINTON FOR PRESIDENT!

    Tanya in Chicago:
    Blah Blah blah!!!..... And what can Billary do??? what experience does she have ???other than having her husband do her homework for her??? "is America ready for a women president"?? Yes..Yes Yes....is america ready for Billary Clinton as president/???No..No...No!!! really Tanya you need to stop voting with your emotions...Billary is not the right "Women " for the Job...On my mothers eyes I would vote for Madeline Albright, or Nancy Pelosi before I vote for Billary...If you want to stand up for a woman president who has made her own history and not riding the coat tails of her husbands deeds as president

    Why is it that none of the candidates do not mention Native American issues. All concerns are of white, black and hispanics. Native Americans have serious issues to.

    A concerned american voter who supports Obama.

    Obama held to one solid message consistently, Hillary changed her messages constantly,
    Obama maintained his competent campaign staff, Hillary had to let go of some of her staff.
    Obama's organization especially in caucus states was superior to Hillary's,
    Obama showed how to run Fiscally responsible campaign, Hillary and McCain had serious financial troubles.

    Obama ran his campaign successfully, Hillary did not.

    We don't want fighters like Hillary. We want achievers like Obama.
