WASHINGTON (CNN) – It could be an historic day for Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden heads to New York City late Tuesday afternoon and will appear on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." That's nothing new for Biden, who's appeared on the program as a guest five times over the past few years.

But this will be Biden's first time on the show since his inauguration as vice president in January. And apparently it will be the first time any sitting vice president will appear as a guest on the program.

    And why should he not be on the show ?
    That show is just another media arm for the
    liberal left. They will make him look personable,
    warm, and humorous. It's just a continuation
    of the constant campaigning by the media for
    this Washington duo.

    Hollywood in Washington DC..or is it Washington in Hollywood. Hard to tell the difference with this bunch. What important stuff will they discuss? I wonder.

    That's Great For Both Vice-President Joe Biden And The Daily Shows Jon Stewart. I Guess Dick Cheney aka. Lord Darkseid Couldn't Apper Because He Was Still Hiding In An Undisclosed Area, Which Would Be Next To The Rock He Was Born Under And Crawled Out Of.

    I hope Jon Stewart allows Biden enough time to self-destruct and show the viewers what a tool our VP truly is.

    I consider The daily show one of the best news show out there. He may be alittle biased, but he will never say anything thats untrue. But most of all his team does something alot of news people dont bother doing anymore. Fact checking.

    Biden will engage the audience "Biden-style" with his trademark folksy charm, an ear-to-ear grin, hearty laugh and several off-message gaffes. By appearing on a comedy program Biden is elevating the Vice Presidency to a whole new level.

    John Stewart is the real deal. Though comedy, I trust him more than I trust Fox News.

    Joe will fit in well there....he's an AMERICAN guy and very open with his thoughts plus opinions......

    Jon Stewart is one to accept all his guest with a roudy but respectful crowd....
