(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.

    Hey there is another guy running who opposed the war, Nader. Obama better come up with something better. He is not the only one who opposed it from day one. Also Nader has been getting it right from day one since before Obama understood what a vote was.

    No, we don't have time for "trial and error", which is what we would get with Hillary.

    She tried to get universal health care and failed [due to backroom politics and unwillingness to compromise].

    She voted incorrectly to let Bush invade Iraq, and we're paying an enormous price.

    She supported NAFTA, and is now trying to change her tune, and we've lost a ton of jobs overseas.

    Obama's history and experience are far superior to Clinton's.

    This is a no-brainer.

    BTW, why won't Hillary release her tax returns? What is she hiding?

    I love John Stuart. He's a funny and smart man, and his show is awesome. I'm sure Sen. Clinton will show America how warm, engaging and funny she is.

    Listen, the Clinton camp did not say Sen. Obama MUST win all states big to remain viable. No one is that stupid. They said he SHOULD win the four states big, considering how much he's outspent Sen. Clinton. Read carefully, folks.

    STOP THIS GARBAGE TALK.
    CLINTON IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT. SHE WILL NOT CRY AND HAS NEVER CRIED IN PUBLIC YOU IDOTS. TEARING UP IS NOT CRYING YOU FOOLS.

    This is not the smartest move, a last minute appeal to young voters from a woman who has proven her inability to deliver one liners or have any comedic timing what-so-ever.

    Lets hope someone writes better lines for her than the Xerox and SNL lines.

    I agree with Tanya that we have no time for trial and error, hoping for Anything new just to revitalize our government....even a fresh face like Obama, who is capitalizing on the fears of another White House dynasty in the making, cannot solve all our problems... his campaign is also a fierce, hard-hitting machine – packaged as hope and renewal, when it's just another way to derail the democratic party...I'd love to see him as VP and be groomed into the change-leader we all hope him to be... but will his competitive nature be able to handle a strong female president as his boss?

    Thanks Tanya. I am so tired of the Hillary bashing! Also so what if she cries! Lets get to the issues we as Americans are facing and vote for the one person best suited to handle the issues. I say, ready on day one with Solutions for Change....Go Hillary! Obama is a sweet talking Bush....no idea on what to do only has words.

    "Now, one of Clinton's laws of politics is this. If one candidate is trying to scare you and the other one is try get you to think, if one candidate is appealing to your fears and the other one is appealing to your hopes, you better vote for the person who wants you to think and hope."

    In Texas, the same people that voted for Bush over Gore are voting for Obama over Hillary. Then they will vote McCain in Nov to put him in the WH.

    Now, many people love Gore and Hate Bush. If Obama or McCain get it, in a couple of years you'll be wondering why you weren't smart enough to elect Hillary.

    I just can't believe how stupidity can repeat itself over and over. There is not much difference between Clinton and Obama except that she more prepared for the job and can beat McCain particularly with O has her running mate. Obama can not. They are going to chew him up and spit him out. Raise your IQ and get a democrat in there people! The only sure way will be a Clinton/Obama ticket. If you like one with your brain...you will like the other.

    VOTE HILLARY NOW
    VOTE CLINTON /OBAMA IN NOV

    We all know Obama will happily take her offer for VP, but she can not accept to be VP for someone that will be learning from her. Please don't screw it up America...get it right!

    The county is taking the wrong road when it comes to electing the Democratic nominee. Everything seems to indicate that Obama is going to win, and this will be a huge mistake.
    The press, though this is "unpopular" to say, is in fact protecting Obama. He is fighting with 6 OZ gloves while Hillery is being made to fight with 16 OZ gloves. I've got news, John McCain is not going to use any gloves. This will be a bear nuckle fight, and Obama is going to loose.
    The issues that McCain is going to bring up don't apply to Hillery. She in fact, has a much better chace of winning over McCain.
    The so call "Dream Team" would in fact have the better chance to beat the GOP in November, but Obama won't pick Hillery if he wins. He feels he doesn't need her, and in fact feels like she would be a liability. Hillery on the other hand, I think is smarter than that and I beleive would pick Obama as her running mate, and bring to the table the support he currently enjoys.
    The fact is that Obama is not ready, and his record on the sente proves this, but no one cares, why ? because there are those who just simply don't like Hillery and would see "anyone" win over her, at any price....and the price, is steep in deed.
    Obama is destined to be a "one term" President. If I were Hillery, I would not accept being his running mate if asked and wait four years then run again against him. Provided he wins, which I don't think he will. Regardless of the Presidential race outcome between Obama and McCain, four years from now, Hillery will be able to say "I told you so". Why ? if Obama wins, because he doen't have the experience to deal with the domestic issues, and he will be a much weaker President than Carter on Foreign Policy issues. If McCain wins, because the weaknesses that he has, and which Hillery has been trying to expose, will result in the Democrats loosing a golden opportunity to win the White House. At a time when we are in a ressession and at war, he's just the wrong person to have in the White House. Period. This is not the time to pick a President based on "popularity". We need someone with guts and experience to get the job done, regardless of how we feel personally about them (or her, in this case). there is simply, way to much at stake.
    The Hillery first, Obama second ticket, would have the greatest chance of creating unity among the democrats and cooperation across party lines to brake a stalemate that has existed for the past 12 years or so, since the Moinica fiasco, which by the way, was fuled by the GOP in an effort to control the Congress, Senete and the White House out of greed for power.
    It might be to late. If Hillery looses Texas, I think she would quit because she doen't want to tear the Democratic party if the fight were to come down to Super Delegates. I beleive her loyalty and service to the party are greater than her own amitions for Presidential office and the historical implications of that achievment. That would silence some who beleive otherwise, not not all. There are those who would kick her when she's down. Hatered is indded an ugly thing devoid of humanisum.

    6 years as a Senator is vast experience? Sure, he's got Obama beat unless you include his state legislature experience. Oh wait, she includes all of Bill Clinton's terms in the white house as well. And what did she do there? Oh yeah, the failed health plan, poorly executed and a good example of her effectiveness as a leader. New York with less jobs than she started? Oh, that's this administration is the excuse. No creativity in execution there. Why won't she release her taxes? What's she hiding there? What about the documents so we can actually see what she did while Bill was in the White House? I want transparency in my government and she's already showing she's not willing to do that.

    Hillary has proven much to this country: divisiveness, ineffectiveness, and secrecy. I can get that anywhere. Obama is someone who has already shown to be more intelligent, calm, logical, and sensible than any other candidate. Living in Louisiana, I've already experienced a governor that cried and was ineffectual. I'm not about to vote a similar candidate into the White House.

    Good, maybe this will help her win over some of the 10% of college students that are able to think for themselves.

    OK.....my prediction:

    Hillary will cry at least one time on national television prior to March 4th. She is behind in Texas and needs to sway the "sympathetic" vote to push her over the edge.

    Mark my words, she will fake at least one visible, emotional display in public. It' all an act and part of the strategy.

    Poor Hillary. If I cannot cheat, fearmonger and lie my way to the nomination, then I'll just have to cry.
