Biden to make history on 'The Daily Show'

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/10/05/art.biden.gi.jpg 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.

    Apparently high level members of this administration cannot wait to appear on Comedy Central's "The Daily show with Jon Stewart", yet they continue to give Fox News the cold shoulder.... why am I not surprised?

    I really like Joe Biden. He is soft spoken, loyal, and genuine. He may step on it sometimes but it adds to his charm. He is exactly what I expect in a vice president. How far we have come in just 10 short months.

    Joe has a great sense of humor,unlike Cheney,who found pulling the wings off flies funny.

    Can't think of a more appropriate place for Joe Biden to appear than on a comedy show.

    Cool, Biden will be talking to one of the last journalists left in the country. Journalism is a dying art and it's a shame only comedians are doing it nowadays.

    What a surprise, Biden going on a Liberal Lovers show. How about getting serious Biden and going on FOX.........he would never survive a serious interview with REAL questions. Biden on a comedy show, we all know he is a big joke, but he's only funny when he thinks he is serious.

    Just taking the lead of his boss, who believes it is better to look hip then actually do anything.

    Why shouldn't a part of a joke be on this show. With Obama's anti-American attitude of letting all of the terroists have their wishes to showing up on all the TV shows, traveling around, bowing to everything but the will of the faithful, moral people of the USA, nothing either our president or vice-president surprises me any more. Oh yeah, also the influence they have on our medical coverage. It doesn't even matter that most women discover breast cancer during their 30s and 40s but now our wonderful leaders have bought off others to save money and they say it isn't necessary until a woman reaches her 50s. Does all this junk concern anyone out there? Our country and our familes are being trampled upon and its coming from our government officials. A funny thing? Maybe this will be in one of the jokes on "Comedy Central".

    I say get out there, Joe! Get on TV as much as possible and let us know what the hell is going on with you and your buddy Barack.

    Good for Joe! He realizes that Jon Stewart is the most trusted news source in America.
