It's all Theater

Politics takes center stage again, as Obama meets with Bernie Sanders to unite the Democratic party. The is generally the time political deals are brokered behind closed doors - but Bernie is too old. After months of campaigning against Hillary - and seeing her true colors and plans for the future of the country - how can one expect Bernie to endorse her. The Republican Party is also facing a similar dilemma in trying to figure out a way to unite the party and support Donald Trump.

Thursday ... My DVR is set for the Tonight Show when Obama joins Jimmy Fallon in a tradition that he began on March 19, 2009, when he became the first sitting U.S. president to appear on a late-night talk show with Jay Leno.

Bill Clinton provided one of the most memorable appearances when he stayed in California for an extra day after winning that state's primary in 1992 to tape The Arsenio Hall Show. Donning Blues Brothers sunglasses, he played a rendition of Heartbreak Hotel on the saxophone.
