Acclaimed Journalist Ryan Seacrest to Interview President Obama Tomorrow

President Obama has really been making the rounds in the days leading up to the midterm elections. Last week he appeared on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” and this week he goes mano-e-mano against arguably his toughest opponent yet… Ryan Seacrest.

Yes, the “American Idol” and radio host will interview the President tomorrow, according to a post on Seacrest’s facebook page.

As he wraps up weeks of urging potential voters to get to the polls on midterm election day, President Barack Obama will join ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ tomorrow, November 2 for an exclusive interview on the state of the nation and life in the White House.

Do YOU have a question for President Obama? What issues concern you most? Let us know in the comments below and Ryan might ask it in the interview!

A sampling of the tough questions being submitted by Facebookers:

Ask him, regarding to halloween, if he has any experience with the ghost of Abe Lincoln or what he has heard about any ghost story in the white house!!

What do you think about Justin Bieber???

Do you watch Hawaii Five 0?

Yeah, there are some serious questions too, but these are more fun.

In all seriousness, the strategy of skipping the major news organizations makes sense. Obama will probably face easier questions, and fewer followups, than if were being interviewed by Chuck Todd, Katie Couric or Bret Baier.

Will it make a difference come Tuesday evening? That remains to be seen.
