On September 5, I posted about a guy dying to do Letterman. It was really fascinating and worth a moral lesson too. According to Yahoo!'s article today Obama laughs on Letterman, the President came to the show because of the heart-shaped potato. Indeed it was really about the potato which Obama really like to see for himself.
That's seems to be an odd reason. For the rest of the taping, issues about health care and war in Iraq has been raised to the president and some audience found his answers irreverent.
On health care issue,
Obama also had his most irreverent answer yet on the question of whether some of the vitriolic reaction to his health care plan is driven at least partly by racism.
"First of all, I think it's important to realize that I was actually black before the election," Obama said to huge laughs from Letterman and the audience.
On Iraq war:
Obama said he won't make a decision on sending in more troops, though, until he completes a comprehensive review of the war effort and settles on his next strategy.Despite those President's responses, he indeed enjoy the show.
"I'm going to be asking some very hard questions," Obama said.
