First lady to appear on Letterman

Mrs. Obama

For the third time during her husband's presidency, First Lady Michelle Obama is preparing to guest on CBS' Late Show with David Letterman, says the Hollywood Reporter.

Mrs. Obama is scheduled to appear on air Wednesday, August 29, which coincides with the third night of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fl. Solid counterprograming, as Mrs. Obama is likable and charismatic. It's a sound political move, because it gets her husband's name out there without coming off as too political, as her appearances aren't the nuts and bolts of policy, but rather the programs and projects she involves herself with.

She has appeared before on the show, with her last visit being on June 5. On that visit, she played up her green thumb image by presenting the "Top 10 Fun Facts about Gardening," which included such doozies as "gardening was invented in 1822 by Albert Gardener" and "the largest zucchini ever grown contained a Starbucks.")

The First Lady is visiting next week as part of her back-to-school media tour, during which she will  speak about "helping parents get their children ready to return to the classroom" and "important changes to school lunch programs nationwide," according to a CBS statement.

She is also serving as a guest editor this week at iVillage, the online women's community, where she is sharing personal anecdotes and tips to help American families "rev up" their back-to-school routines.

What is with you and the politics rants lately?

A article is written about nothing more than Michelle Obama appearing on a talk show and you blow a gasket. I don't get it.

Wow, I don't believe it.  Michelle Obama on a talkshow...?!  She's on Ellen & Leno weekly, sometimes more.  Thank God she's so incredibly fascinating!  She "wrote" a book on gardens.  Yeah, "gardens"...!!  I can't imagine anything more interesting, except maybe WATCHING a garden grow.  If there's time I hope she'll talk about how great her husband is.  I'm praying she gives nutrition tips, because she's really into nutrition.  Okay, she may be pushing a buck eighty, but if she didn't eat so healthy & know her stuff, she'd weigh 380...  I'm hoping next year, if she doesn't retire into domestic-bliss in Chicago, Al Gore will give her a talk show on his network CURNT.  She's definitely someone I'd like to keep an eye on.  Break a leg, Michelle!  You too, Dave!
