CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -
One more thing, about President Obama "Slow Jammin' the News" with Jimmy Fallon. Was it un-presidential?
Barack Obama is the first sitting president to appear on late night TV comedy shows, and some think it's not appropriate.
Why not? The president is running a campaign too.
There's no shame in showing another side of your personality, displaying a sense of humor.
There's a long history of successful white house candidates whose road to the Oval Office began with a few late night laughs.
All of those candidates were elected president.
Of course, sometimes that's when behavior not becoming the highest office in the land can really start.
