(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.

    I love you Obama! Just a few more days and we will finally have our nominee to go up against Grandpa McCain. We need a fresh face and a new start for America! McCain and Clinton represent the past and everybody knows that if you live in the past you fail to grow! I feel that there is a bright future for the U.S.! OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA, take it to the polls!!!!! Texas, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Vermont vote to end the nomination process and help us get the republicans out of office and help heal America! God Bless Everyone!

    Please take a second to ask yourself this question and answer it honestly:

    If Hillary was not the wife of a popular president, would she has risen to the status she has right now? Strictly on her own merits and not the fame of her husband, Do you think we would be talking about her now?? You and I know the answer to this one!!

    If there is any similarity between a candidate and G.W. Bush, it is that she was propelled to the political seen because of her relation to a former president like Bush to his father!!

    H.Clinton & B. Obama are running and get coverage on CNN. What in the world is Billy doing – – he gets far more coverage (time) on your news coverage than Michelle. I still think you should register as a political machine for the Washington establishment – – there might be some added tax benefits for CNN.

    The truth is, neither B. Clinton or M. Obama should get all the time on TV as the candidates. In order to give B the "voice" – – you have to do the same for M – – as capable as Michelle is, she is not the x-pres., and her words are not as notable to the critical population (undecides) as Bill. Yes he is experienced – – and experienced politician (as is H). Your measure of coverage becomes a travisity. Hopefully, others with recognize your bias, and listen to the candidates instead of the more experienced politicians. Mike

    Hillary is the best.
    Obama was trying so hard to get in all the shows, I saw him moving everywhere, using his "street smart", he said that's good communication... He thinks he can get into White House with these tricks... what a joke, American people aren't that stupid and blind.

    Can't wait to see the show. I am sure she will get a fair shake on this show as opposed to mainstream media. This show seems to inform us more than mainstream media anyway.

    Hillary's chatter abouit beinjg experienced is bare-faced dishonesty.

    She spent many a night in the White House conjugal bedroom wondering who Bill might be consorting with that night.

    That trauma,and the probability of the poor woman having flashbacks,is enough reason to prevent her from going back in there.

    Too dangerous for us.

    Rehab for Bioll, therapy for Hill.

    Good. Don't need another show with Obama dancing. Twice on Ellen was enough. But I guess he has alot of time to work on his dance moves since he's often "missing in action." He's been the chair of a critical committee that's supposed to oversee NATO in the war in Afghanistan for over a year. Hasn't held one meeting. He also failed to show up for a key vote on the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to help the troops in Iraq. Too busy campaigning. He didn't even bother to show up at last week's Black Forum in New Orleans. Hillary attended. That's Obama for you. A man who likes to vote present but rarely IS present.
    Go Hillary!

    a chair of a committe that's Hillary was right on the mark, when it came to judgement and following through, where was obama? He was voting for something he said he was against. obama is weak and again came out with an ad claiming his credentials are that he was against the war. But when it came to putting up, he shut up, this argument is old and boring and has no relevance. When has obama negotiated and was instrumental in resoluting peace, when has obama ever stood up for human rights in other countries, when has he held a sub-committee hearing that oversees Europe and Nato actions in Afghanistan? NEVER!

    I have read the blog and it is true, the Obama supporters are such hate mongers that they are irrational. They can be equated to the far right wing of the Republican party who have an attitude that it is my way or no way. Too bad many good candidates are not still in this race. Hillary is more informed and her answers during debates are concise, and thoughtful. She shows she has a grasp of domestic and foreign affairs. So what if she didn't succeed the first time trying to bring about health care reform (don't forget the Republicans didn't like the fact that she was a First Lady and Bill appointed her to head this up). I do believe that Obama's lack of experience is a very big factor and his stretching of the truth of his actual accomplishments are something to be questioned.

    Many Clinton supporters will back McCain just on the experience factor and because he has demonstrated that he can work across the aisle.

    Google " Hillary Truth" and you will see Hillary's true colors.

    Why should Obama be the VP when he is winning? It doesn't make sense. Plus based on how active they were on the Senate, Obama is a lot more experienced than Hillary.

    As a President, Obama will fix the country. Hillary will run the country just like how she ran her campaign.

    Think people.

    One thing for sure, if obama gets the nomination, heaven forbid, we can quit worrying about him being President, because the Republicans will tear him to shreds. I'm sure they are very busy gathering information about him for their national campaign. John McCain says he will not run a negative campaign, he won't have to, they will do it for him. Swift boat will look like kindergarden stuff compared to what they will do to obama and he will deserve it. The media has had their darling obama for the primaries and if he wins the nomination it will be because of them. I have never seen such bias in my life. Reporters are suppose to report the facts and you should never know who they are backing. Just like a referee in a ball game. I am sure they all have their pick of who they want to win but they certainly can't show it or they would be out of a job. I for one will never watch CNN again if obama wins the nomination as I will blame them. FOX has been much more fair to Hillary then CNN. The republicans say they want HIllary to be the nominee as they think they can beat her but they are using reverse psychology as they really want obama because they KNOW they an beat him. Why else would Dick Morris ask republicans in Texas to vote for obama. They don't want to go up against Hillary. Get smart Americans, vote for the most qualified, not the one that says change, as there can be change for the worse too. We had lots of change under bush and look where it got us. Wake up and cast your vote for Hillary Clinton.

    Looking forward to your fake laughter, Hillary. I'd rather nominate Jon Stewart for President.

    Being First Lady does not qualify anyone to be President. On the "experience" front, Senator Obama has been an elected official since 1996, longer than Senator Clinton has considerign she was first elected in 2000. Her recent fear-mongering television ad is appalling. She is clearly running scared and depending on Karl Rove tactics.

    I don't think it is going to change the reality that she is the agent of lobbing and special interest. She has accepted so much money from them that she can't bring real change for common people. I would like to hear exactly what is her experience of 35 years. I only know that she gave George Bush the blank check to go to war to Iraq and Iran. I want to hear from her what exactly she is going to do as a President and how she is going to funds those programs. I want to hear details as she is demanding from Senator Obama.

    Enough of these phony and scripted appearences for Billary. How about releasing your tax returns and the Clinton library records that document her schedule and agenda as first lady. It would definitely show that she ain't no lady .

    We don't care about Hillary making an appearance on
    Jon Stewart. I used to like Jon. Hillary is deceitful and
    will say anything to win for money, power and prestige.
    Actually, Jon is just giving her free publicity here.

    Tanya, your post goes right to the nitty gritty of issues our country is in now and the next President is going to face. I couldn't agree with you more. I fear if Senator Clinton is not the nominee for the democratic party, expect another 4 years of Republican leadership in the Whitehouse. Lifelong democrats who are the base of the party are WILLING to throw this election away to the GOP if Hillary is not the nominee for their party. Can I blame the base of the party for doing so? NO. These people who support their party are REALISTIC, they're not easily swayed by poetic words that can easily seduced the young and naive.

    I'm a libertarian, my man is Ron Paul, but I would be happy to vote for Senator Clinton if she's the nominee for the Democratic Party come November election.
