Clinton to appear on 'The Daily Show'

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption=" 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.

    -Now she is threatening to take taxas to court for the way they run the primaries in the state.
    -She blame the media for supporting Obama.
    -She wants women to vote for her because she is a woman
    -She cry for sympathy
    What a poor woman

  4. Texas for Hillary

    Anyone question Hillary's Experience?

    Everyone on earth knows Hillary is CO-president who help bill make critical dicision. they do supior job in US history, they create 27 million jobs, it is the best time to be American in history. The real experience is not enough?

    Why this highest job is "No experience required!!"


    If obama have judgement, he should know his long time friend -middle east business man is corrupted. If Obama have brain, he will not buy a house which he can't afford, asking Rezko pay for the land, which is "bone head mistake"

    Vote for Iraq is right judgement based on the intelligence and threat at that time. Things turn to wrong because the intelligence failture.

    Obama always say "It is washington's fault, it is bush's fault", Why he never criticize his home state where Chicago is the most corrupted state?--Because he is one of them!!!

    Wake up! You are going to vote another Bush, and much worse than bush, he is Hilter!

    Hillary all the way!

    Why is it that any other woman in the United States who supported the household while her husband pursued his interests, took backseat to his career ambitions, and suffered through 35 years of sustained abuse by being lied to, cheated on, and publicly humiliated would be considered mentally abusedand in dire need of sunstantial pshycological treatment but Hillary is considered worthy of becoming the stable leader of the free world? Just look at her mood swings people!

    I read the comment from Tanya (Chicago) and I agree with it 100%!Further to her remarks, one of the reasons that some Democrats are backing Obama is that they think he has a better chance of beating McCain in the general election. But the latest poll released on Friday from Pew Research shows both Clinton and Obama with a similar lead over McCain (50-45% vs. 50-43%, respectively). So where's the Obama advantage?

    This should be interesting.

    When Jon was interviewed by Larry King and asked about the candidates, Jon replied, "Hillary. Well, people recognize her name. She was the one who was married to the president."

    When the phone rings in the White House it's for real - Obama won't be able to say "oh, that's not what I meant" the next day.

    Get real folks and stop drinking the Kool-Aid. We need someone who already knows the right answers as leader of the Free World. You don't get on-the-job-training with this job.

    SO ASK YOURSELF–Why are you supporting HE who shall remain nameless? it's hope? change? Hope for what? Change for what? You want someone who is only able to attack the Iraq war when it's convenient? (when he wasn't in the US SENATE, he was a state senator) as his only evidence being I never voted for a resolution (of course that's convenient in the SENATE)? THEN WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT— HE has nothing! Offers nothing!!! WAKE UP AMERICA— HE who shall remain nameless is there for change- WHAT CHANGE? WHAT HOPE? WHAT DO YOU WANT HIM TO ACHIEVE??? Yes we can–Yes we can what? IT's OUR CAMPAIGN? OUR CAMPAIGN FOR WHAT? TO TAKE BACK WHAT? We are not the proletariat rising against the Bourgeoisie…Yes CAN WE DO? YES we do WHAT???— if Barack is in the white house what will he do? Do you know? All I know is that he talks a good talk, and spins his wheels… and we MUST VOTE FOR HILLARY, a straight talker– YES WE CAN!! GO HILLARY 2008… AT 3AM I want the most experienced DEMOCRAT ANSWERING THE PHONE!!! HILLARY CLINTON!!!

    Hillary has the experience necessary to be president. She's lost some battles (1993 healthcare) won some battles (1997 SCHIP for children) and has a unique type of experience. I think that 8 years as a U.S. Senator, 8 years as a U.S. First Lady, and 12 years as a First Lady of Arkansa. During her whole career she has fought to make healthcare affordable and accessible to children and the uninsured. Hillary has been battle tested and even if you don't agree with her no one can doubt her sincerity. The policies she supports aren't just for campaign bumper stickers but are issues she's been fighting for her whole adult life.

    Here's a question for Obama supporters: If he hadn't been a Senator when he voted to increase funding for the war in Iraq what would he be saying about that issue now? We all know the answer don't we. The truth is that there are a number of people who are like this. But, that won't solve the issue of what do we do in 2009. I think Hillar's plan has the best chance for success and the best chance to lead this country in a new and positive direction.

    Oh PLEASE!!! Can't this woman have a single original thought? Obama did it, so now...SURPRISE...Hillary is going to do it as well (of her own accord, she'll be certain to remind you).

    Guaranteed her "advisors" have told her to cry, because "victim-Hillary" is what won her New Hampshire. Sorry Shrillary; we americans have wised up since then, and are well aware of your "croc" tears.

    Buh-Bye, Heinous Lady. On your way out, don't the the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.

    This should prove interesting. It will depend on if Jon feels like just being humourous, or if he is in one of his tough question moods. If he is in the tough question mood, Hillary will wish she hadn't come on. As far as some of the other Hillary supporter statements I have been reading..1) Hillary is in this positon because her campaign was VERY POORLY ran. 2) Just because she is the FIRST women to be a serious candidate is NOT a good enough reason for her to be selected. 3) On the Iraq war vote..You all need to remember she admitted she didn't even read the FULL report before voting. Does that REALLY sound like someone that is going to be ready day one?? and 4) If you look at her campaign objectively you have to admit many of the tatics have been less than admirable. Instead of remaining focused on her own strengths, she has tried to blame other forces like the media for her plight. I really hope she doesn't win because she basically blew it!! She's a fighter all right, but isn't it more important to be a WINNER.

    How does one go from being a community organizer to candidate in such a short time? We will find out when it is too late.

    The only reason that Obama has been doing so well is simple. After the Bush administration, people will vote for anyone. People have no interest in knowing anything about Obama. He constantly claims to show how he makes god "judgments". Guess this is why he maintained a long term , 19 year relationship, with Rezko. Good judgment is also why he held meetings with Wiliam Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Ayers is the founder of the Weathermen and Dohrn was a member. (For those to young to know, the Weathermen were the most natorious and unrepentant violent figures of the sixties.)
    Of all the churches that Obama choose, he selected one that is lead by Jeremiah Wright who admires Farrakhan. (Wow, great judgments!)
    There are more examples but anyone who takes the time to look into any of these will learn much. Rezko goes to trial March 3. Unfortunately, elections are the next day. Not enough time to show the complete Obama/Rezko relationship. Most unfortunate.

    This piece extracted from the news item above is such an understatement: "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."

    MUST DO WELL? What are the pundits' concept of WELL? Unless by WELL they mean beating Obama by 15 points in each of the four states on Tuesday, then Hillary will be saying FAREWELL!

    How, do you, as a candidate with a 50-point lead a year ago, with the full backing of the nationwide DNC establishment, with the CLINTON name recognition, with 130 million dollars in campaign funds and with early backing of the majority of super delegates go to throwing the kitchen sink at a candidate whom you claim has no experience for the job that your 35 years experience qualifies you for?

    If you cannot sustain your commanding lead by running a successful campaign, how can you be trusted to maintain America's lead as a superpower and run a successful national government?

    Pardon me, ma'am, but your slip is showing and your halo is slipping.

    John –
    Excellent job on the Oscar ceremony earlier this week. Do America a fvor by asking Mrs. Clinton once again to release her tax returns, and for her husband to release his White House papers.
    We would be ill-served to learn of a Clinton "smoking gun" on Wednesday, March 5, following these all-important primaries.
    If the phone does ring at 3:00 am, it conceivably could be the IRS also asking her to release the returns, or perhaps the Secret Service reporting Bill yet again "missing in action."

    Great job,

    Why don't you Hillary supporters realize that she has absolutely no chance whatsoever to defeat McCain in November because there are so many dems who will not vote for her. It is unbelievable that you cannot see how much the Clintons are despised in this country. Wake up, dems! Vote for Obama if you want a dem in the WH!

  20. A Democrat

    We have to be united guys. Democrats need to stop killing each other before this nominee is chosen. I'll vote for either one, because both of them will make changes for good. But lets stop saying "Hillary is too desperate just to have power, or Obama is all words and no substance" because we all know that this is only going to change things for the worse. I'm a little offended about how much supporters have gone out of their way too try to destroy the other candidate. Either one will be a fine president. Lets focus on that.

    Obama 08 or Hillary 08 I don't care

    First off, to Paul Brown... I commend you on your comments and shame on you to the two you said shame on him. Let the man speak his mind. Secondly, I also am willing to bet that she cries while on this show. It's happened twice now and I'm sure she's thinking, with a national audience, that the third time will be the charm.

    I'm going to be voting for Obama because I want a change in my government. If you look at their policies, they are basically the same. There are small differences, but this isn't about policies. This is about politics and how one goes about those politics. I'm voting for Obama because of how he will do things.

  24. pd4hillary

    Actually, I thought her humor in the debates was right on!! But then again, I'm not brainwashed by Obama rhetoric that thinks it is blasphemy to critique him.

    On the Iraq war vote, those senators thought they were being given inside information that the general public did not have. That information was skewed by the White House to present a very narrow picture. Obama as an outsider was no different than any of the rest of us. It was a guessing game as to whether they had weapons or not, posed a threat or not. He just happened to guess right, but it really was a 50/50 shot. Not a sound judgment call. Guarantee if he had been given the misinformation that senators like Hillary were being given, he would have voted the same way. Besides, I thought he was all about the future, not the past.

    Check out his policies:
    open for vounchers for public schools
    not in favor of universal healthcare
    open to letting "No Child Left Behind" stay in place, as is
    While he and Hillary are on the same page on a lot of issues, her page since she was the first to come out with her policies and he just did "ditto," there are a few core issues they are not and these are Democratic issues. Beware of a Republican in Democrat clothing.

    Enough of this craziness, Democrats in Texas and Ohio vote for Hillary to vote for true Democratic principles. Then, when she wins, we will hold her accountable to fulfill these promises. And, she will. It really is in her to do it!!!

    Go home Hillary going on Jon Stewart is not going to change minds. You are not the right candidate for the Democrat Party. You try to have people believe you have experience. I realize that Barack does not have experience as President and neither do you. Give it a break and stop dividing the party. Democrats want OBAMA. Go home to New York and play your dirty politics. Evil Evil woman.

    What ever it takes to get elected you are desperate!!!

    Obama exemplifies a Presidential demeanor he is not catty desperate. He did not whine when he lost races
    He did not FAKE a CRY He did not try to find someone else to blame when he lost races, He did not resort to gutter politics when he lost states in the primaries/caucuses. You are setting the clock back for women everywhere with your pitiful displays.

    I am a former Bill Clinton supporter and I tell you I WOULD NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER VOTE FOR YOU . You are a FAKE and YOU ARE EVIL. YOU PLAY DIRTY AND IT is NOT GOING TO HELP YOU WIN . PEOPLE SEE YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE (this is the reason you are not winning) You must now come to grips with the fact that we voted for Bill Clinton in 92 and in 96 NOT YOU. You are not going to ride his coattails into the Whitehouse. I do not care that you are a woman or that Barack is a Black man. I will vote for the best candidate and that candidate is OBAMA!

    VOTE OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT 2008!!!!!!!!!!!
