Biden to make history on 'The Daily Show'

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Biden will become the first VP on to appear on The Daily Show Tuesday."]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.

    Way to go Joe! Once a clown, always a clown!

    The Obama Administration and the Democrats in Congress are like a circus parade coming through town. They provide lots of laughs and lots of fun using the same old routines they use every year in every town they visit but at the end of the day, someone has to clean up the mess the animals leave behind. In this case, instead of a street cleaner with a shovel, it will be the American taxpayers writing checks to the IRS.

    Stewart pewps journalism compared to most major networks, whose behavior evidences a severe constipation of critical thought brought on by them overindulging in the cheese that is the advertising industry.

    I bet he'll get some really tough questions, too.

    Good place for Biden–a comedy show......he will never outstar Palin–if that is his intention! What a joker.....

  17. Biden is a clown.....

    doesn't he have anything better to do today?

    Does anyone else get the impression that this administration is more concerned with being celebrities than they are leading this country out of its current mess? The country has serious problems...over 40 companies that received bailout money said they will have to default on the loans, over 10% unemployment, made up jobs data in the stimulus reporting, very questionable decisions on terrorist trials in the civil court system and elective surgeries included in the government health care can this administration be focussed on fund raising and time on late night talk shows right now? This is embarassing.

    You would think that he would have more to do than this...what is it with todays liberals? Do they all have such a narcisist complex that they HAVE to always be on TV, having photo ops, stumping and not doing what we hired them to do?

    Stop taking poll for each and every issue.
    What public knows about having trial for 9/11 suspect in New york?
    Why don't we run this country by taking poll for everything,
    Than may be we don't need president and congress for decision making.

    Looks like Uncle Joe needs a new weave!

    What a joke this guy is! I guess we'll hear more about how wonderful the Stimulous Plan is working even though unemployment continues to skyrocket! The Dems are sooooo lame!

    No big deal, he makes a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth. This just comes naturally for him.

    He has really become irrelivant; if that is all he has to do. Isn't Stewart afraid that he will be upstaged by some of Biden's off the cuff stupid remarks?

    Jon Daily is an absolute joke but, so is Biden! Why on earth is this "history"? Don't we have other, much more important issues going on now that might be "history" making news?????
