Is President Obama Right to Appear on Jay Leno's Tonight Show?

The president draws criticism for his Thursday appearance on Leno's Tonight Show.


President Obama's appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno is causing controversy. For example, Mary Kate Cary wrote about Obama's scheduled appearance this week: "Doing Jay Leno lessens the stature of the office, and diminishes the man." Obama will be the first ever sitting president to appear on the show. What do you think about Obama's appearance on The Tonight Show ? Does it diminish the office of the presidency? Or does it provide the president with a new venue to connect with the public? Post your thoughts.
