Why Obama Agreed to be Stewart’s Guest

THE DEEP END…TIPS FROM THE POOL

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs addresses POTUS’s upcoming appearance on The Daily Show in D.C. in the final question of  a press gaggle aboard Air Force One en route to Portland, Ore. Wednesday afternoon. The D.C. show tapes on Oct. 27.

Q Quick question.  The Daily Show — why did he agree to appear on that?  And is there any significance to that so close to Election Day?

MR. GIBBS: Well, look, I think it’s a program that younger voters and even occasionally older voters, the 39-year-old age group, catch, if they can remember to stay up late.  No, I think it’s a great way to appeal to a younger voter audience that is a big part of the President’s base.
