Unfortunately, Washington politics has spoiled his debut appearance at the table with Stewart as Obama has to vote on the defense spending bill.
While I would have love to seen the Senator on the tube tonight, I commend him for doing his job by voting on the bill in Washington.
The Chicago Tribune reports
Sen. Barack Obama's debut on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" has been foiled. The culprit: official Senate business. Obama was to appear on the program in New York on Monday. But spokesman Robert Gibbs said Sunday that Obama had to cancel so he could be in Washington to vote on a defense spending bill.EDIT: I just recieved word that he will appear via satellite.
